Description Crutcher Dunnavant 2002-02-01 22:36:46 UTC
Description of Problem:
db2html is a wrapper around jw, and a thin one at that. However, when originally
written, it made assumptions which are no longer true. Specifical, that it would
alwas work on files of the form *.sgml or *.sgm.

The issue is that it uses a line like this:
   output="$(echo $arg | sed 's,\.sgml$,,;s,\.sgm$,,')"
To figgure out the output directory.

This does not work for *.xml files.

Attached is a modified version of db2html, which extends the sed line. It also
adds a command line switch for '-o' which allows explicit setting of the output
directory the way that help says it will.

Oops, yes.  I didn't think about XML when I wrote it.  Thanks.

Comment 5 Crutcher Dunnavant 2002-02-04 18:49:22 UTC
the -o switch I put in is all wrong. :(
Trying to fix.

Comment 6 Crutcher Dunnavant 2002-02-04 19:05:25 UTC
This version seems to be much better.
Sorry about the last one. It was friday and I was heading for a date, so I
didn't test it much.

Crutcher: learn shell one day. :-)

I see what you're trying to do, and I will fix it for next time.

Comment 9 Tim Waugh 2002-02-06 16:41:22 UTC
Fixed in 0.6.9-21.  I left -o out: if you care, use docbook2html instead.
