NAME

       nih-dbus-tool - D-Bus binding code generator

SYNOPSIS

       nih-dbus-tool [OPTIONS]...  [-o FILE] [XMLFILE]
       nih-dbus-tool [OPTIONS]...  -o FILE --system|--session --dest=NAME OBJECT-PATH

DESCRIPTION

OVERVIEW

       The D-Bus introspection format is an XML document describing the interfaces implemented by
       a particular object, including the methods and signals of that interface along with  their
       arguments and the properties of that interface.

       A  single  document  describes  a  single  object,  represented  by  the  root <node> tag.
       Interfaces implemented by that  object  are  specified  by  <interface>  tags  within  it.
       Methods,  signals  and  properties  defined  by  the  interface are described by <method>,
       <signal> and <property> tags within the interface.  Arguments to methods and  signals  are
       defined  by <arg> tags within them.  Names and other values are specified as attributes to
       the tag.

       Additional properties for external tools or software may be given  in  <annotation>  tags.
       These may appear within interfaces, methods, signals, properties and arguments.  nih-dbus-
       tool makes use of many of these.  Note that  argument  annotations  are  an  nih-dbus-tool
       extension to the format.

       nih-dbus-tool's  parser  is reasonably liberal, to allow for future expansion of the D-Bus
       introspection format.  Any unknown tag, attribute or annotation, or  any  tag  not  in  an
       expected  location,  will  be  ignored  with  a warning.  However a missing root node tag,
       missing attributes, illegal or invalid format values for defined attributes or  non  well-
       formed XML will result in an error.

       Character data and comments are not considered part of description, and are not parsed.
