hxextract - extract selected elements from a HTML or XML file
hxextract [ -h | -? ] [ -x ] [ -s text ] [ -e text ] [ -b base ] element-or-class [ -c configfile | file-or-URL ]
hxextract outputs all elements with a certain name and/or class. Input must be well-formed, since no HTML heuristics are applied.
The following options are supported: -x Use XML format conventions. -s text Insert text at the start of the output. -e text Insert text at the end of the output. -b base URL base -c configfile Read @chapter lines from configfile (lines must be of the form "@chapter filename") and extract elements from each of those files. -h, -? Print command usage.
The following operands are supported: element-or-class The name of an element to extract (e.g., "H2"), or the name of a class preceded by "." (e.g., ".example") or a combination of both (e.g., "H2.example"). file-or-URL A file name or a URL. To read from standard input, use "-".
To use a proxy to retrieve remote files, set the environment variables http_proxy and ftp_proxy. E.g., http_proxy="http://localhost:8080/"
Remote files (specified with a URL) are currently only supported for HTTP. Password- protected files or files that depend on HTTP "cookies" are not handled. (You can use tools such as curl(1) or wget(1) to retrieve such files.)
