       epubcheck - Validation tool for EPUB


       epubcheck file.epub


       All detected errors are simply printed to stderr

       When  running this tool, the first argument should be the name (with the path) of the file
       to check.  If checking a non-epub file, the epub version of the  file  must  be  specified
       using -v and the type of the file using -mode.  The default version is: 3.0.

       Modes  and versions supported: -mode opf -v 2.0    // For single OPF file validation (EPUB
       2) -mode opf -v 3.0    // For single OPF file validation (EPUB 3) -mode xhtml -v  2.0   //
       For  single  XHTML  file  validation (EPUB 2) -mode xhtml -v 3.0  // For single XHTML file
       validation (EPUB 3) -mode svg -v 2.0    // For single SVG file validation (EPUB  2)  -mode
       svg -v 3.0    // For single SVG file validation (EPUB 3) -mode nav -v 3.0    // For single
       'Navigation Document' validation -mode mo   -v  3.0     //  For  single  'Media  Overlays'
       validation -mode exp           // For validating expanded EPUB archives

       This  tool  also  accepts the following flags: -save         = saves the epub created from
       the expanded epub (-mode exp) -quiet        = no message sent to stdout,  only  errors  in
       stderr  -out  <file>    =  output  an assessment XML document in file (experimental) -? or
       -help   = displays this help message

         Most of the EpubCheck functionality comes from  the  schema  validation  tool  Jing  and
         schemas that were developed by IDPF and DAISY. Initial EpubCheck development was largely
         done at Adobe Systems.
