NAME

hxcount - count elements and attributes in HTML or XML files  

SYNOPSIS

hxcount [ file-or-URL ]  

DESCRIPTION

The hxcount command counts the number of elements and attributes of each type that appears in the input and prints a report on stdout.  

OPERANDS

The following operand is supported:
file-or-URL
The name or URL of an HTML or XML file. If absent, standard input is read instead.
 

EXIT STATUS

The following exit values are returned:
0
Successful completion.
> 0
An error occurred in the parsing of the HTML or XML file. hxcount will try to recover from the error and produce output anyway.
 

ENVIRONMENT

To use a proxy to retrieve remote files, set the environment variables http_proxy and ftp_proxy. E.g., http_proxy=http://localhost:8080/  

BUGS

Don't trust the output if there were errors in the input.

Remote files (specified with a URL) are currently only supported for HTTP. Password-protected files or files that depend on HTTP "cookies" are not handled. (You can use tools such as curl(1) or wget(1) to retrieve such files.)
