       xgfconfig - configuration program for Xgridfit


       xgfconfig options [list]


       Xgfconfig selects XSLT processors and RELAX NG validators for Xgridfit to use; it can also
       be used to specify a new Xgridfit base directory.

       Xgridfit maintains lists of validators and processors;  on  starting,  it  consults  these
       lists  and  runs  the  first validator and processor it can find. Xgfconfig reorders these
       lists so that your preferred programs are looked for first. Xgfconfig may  be  invoked  in
       one of these forms:

            $ xgfconfig --processors processor-list

            $ xgfconfig --validators validator-list

            $ xgfconfig --xgridfit-dir /xgridfit/directory

            $ xgfconfig --show

       The  first  of  these selects processors (one or more of libxslt, lxml, xsltproc, saxon-6,
       saxon-9, xalan-j, xalan-c, 4xslt); the second selects validators (one or more of  libxml2,
       lxml,  jing, msv, rnv); the third specifies a complete path to the Xgridfit base directory
       (use it if you have installed Xgridfit in your own account rather than system  wide);  the
       fourth displays the current configuration.

       Several  of the processors and validators that Xgridfit knows about are Java programs; for
       these, Xgridfit needs the name and location of a .jar file (by default it assumes  certain
       standard  file names, found in /usr/share/java). Specify this with a hash-mark followed by
       a complete path-name for the file. Here are sample command lines:

            $ xgfconfig -p saxon-9#/usr/local/share/java/saxon9he.jar lxml

            $ xgfconfig --config=config.xml -V rnv msv#/home/me/java/msv.jar

       The second of these commands stores the  configuration  in  the  file  config.xml  in  the
       current  directory.  (When  it  starts,  Xgridfit looks first for a file config.xml in the
       current directory; failing that, it looks for ~/.xgridfit/config.xml (Linux/Mac) or  some-
       path (Windows); finally it looks in the Xgridfit base directory before giving up and using
       the default configuration.)

       An Xgridfit configuration file is a simple XML file, easily editable by users. The entries
       in it should be all but self-explanatory.


              The  configuration  file to read or write. If this is not specified, Xgfconfig will
              search in the standard places (see above) for an existing  configuration  file  for
              which  the user has write privileges.  Failing that, it will create a configuration
              file in the directory ~/.xgridfit (Linux/Mac) or some-dir (Windows). If the user is
              root  or  has  administrative  privileges,  Xgfconfig  will  create the file in the
              Xgridfit base directory.

       -h, --help
              Display a help message and exit.

       -p, --processors
              The list following the options is a list of processors.

       -s, --show
              Display the current configuration and exit.

       -V, --validators
              The list following the options is a list of validators.

       -x, --xgridfit-dir
              Following the options is the full pathname of the Xgridfit base directory.
