[ITP] rxp-1.3.0 - a new package for review (XML parser)

Iäve found rxp easier to use than xmlwf (expat), especially when
rxp has more options for verification purposes. I'm attaching
the manual below for people interested in option differences to

Please review packages below.

       rxp - XML parser program

       rxp [ -avVEsbnmtx ] [ -o b|p|0|1|2|3 ] [ -c encoding ] [ url ]

       rxp  reads  and  parses  XML from the url (or standard input if none is
       provided) and writes it to standard output, optionally expanding  enti-
       ties,  defaulting  attributes,  and  translating  to a different output

       -a     Insert declared default values for omitted attributes.

       -v     Be verbose.

       -V     Validate the document.  Repeating this option will make the pro-
              gram  treat  validity errors as well-formedness errors, and exit
              after the first validity error  (otherwise  a  warning  will  be
              printed for each one).

       -d     Read  the  whole DTD (internal and external parts) regardless of
              any standalone  declaration.   Otherwise  a  declaration  "stan-
              dalone='yes'"  will  prevent  the  external part from being read
              (unless validation is selected).

       -N     Enable XML namespace support.  The document will be checked  for
              correct namespace syntax, and if -b is specified  qualified ele-
              ment and attribute names will be displayed with their URIs.

       -S     Keep track of xml:space attributes.  This will only affect  out-
              put when -b is specified.

       -e     Obsolete, do not use.

       -E     Do not expand entity references (opposite of old -e flag)

       -s     Be  silent  (that is, suppress output).  Useful for benchmarking
              or if you just want to see the error messages.

       -b     Print output as "bits".

       -n     Treat the  input  as  normalised  SGML  rather  than  XML.   Not
              intended for general use.

       -o     If  this  flag is p, output is in the default (plain) format. If
              it is b, output is printed as "bits" (equivalent to  -b).     If
              it is 0, output is suppressed (equivalent to -s).  If it is 1, 2
              or 3, output is in first, second or third canonical form.

       -m     Merge PCData across entity references.  This  will  only  affect
              the output when -b is specified.

       -t     Read  in  the input as a tree, rather than bits.  Should make no
              difference to the output.

       -u base_uri
              Use the specified base URI when resolving system identifiers.

       -x     Strict XML mode.   This  suppresses  some  warnings  (eg  entity
              redefinitions)  but  treats  all  XML  well-formedness errors as
              fatal.  This flag implies the  -a  flag,  and  sets  the  output
              encoding to UTF-8 unless the -c flag is given.  It sets the out-
              put format to first canonical form unless the -o, -b or -s  flag
              is given.

       -c encoding
              Produce  output  in  the  specified  character  encoding.  Known
              encodings include ISO-8859-1, UTF-8, ISO-10646-UCS  and  UTF-16.
              16-bit  encoding  names  my be suffixed with -B or -L to specify
              big- or little-endian byte order (the default is the  host  byte
              order).   If  no -c or -x option is given, output is in the same
              encoding as the input document.

       -z     Use a shorter format for error  messages.   Particularly  useful
              when  using  the parser in Emacs compilation mode, so that Emacs
              can find the error location.
