       xml2 - convert xml documents in a flat format

       2xml - convert flat format into xml

       html2 - convert html documents in a flat format

       2html - convert flat format into html

       csv2 - convert csv files in a flat format

       2csv - convert flat format into csv


       <xml2|2xml|html2|2html|csv2|2csv> > outfile < infile


       There  are six tools. Except csv2 and and 2csv they don't take any command-line arguments.
       They are all simple filters which can be used to read files from  standard  input  in  one
       format and output it to standard output in another format.

       The  flat  format  used  by  the  tools  is  specific  to these tools.  It is a syntax for
       representing structured markup in a way that makes it easy to process  with  line-oriented
       tools.   The  same  format  is  used  for HTML and XML; in fact, you can think of html2 as
       converting HTML to XHTML and running xml2 on the result;  likewise  2html  and  2xml.  (Of
       course, this isn't how the implementation works.)


       This  program does normally not include any documentation in form of manpages.  However it
       has a real excellent documentation online with a lot of example.  In fact this manpage was
       based on this documentation.

       This  manpage  was  written  by  Patrick Schoenfeld <> for the
       Debian project, but may be used by others under the same terms as xml2 is distributed.
