It aims to support DocBook version 4.2, excepting the features that cannot be supported or are not useful in a man page or Texinfo document.
For information on the latest releases of docbook2X, and downloads, please visit the docbook2X home page.
To convert to man pages, you run the command docbook2man. For example,
docbook2man --solinks manpages.xml
The man pages will be output to your current directory.
--solinks options tells
docbook2man to create
man page links. You may want to omit this option when developing
documentation so that your working directory does not explode with
many stub man pages. (If you don’t know what this means, you
can read about it in detail in db2x_manxml, or just ignore the previous
two sentences and always specify this option.)
To convert to Texinfo, you run the command docbook2texi. For example,
One (or more) Texinfo files will be output to your current directory.
The rest of this manual describes in detail all the other options and how to customize docbook2X’s output.
