Altova RaptorXML Server 2020

The valxml-withdtd | xml command validates one or more XML instance documents against a DTD.


raptorxml valxml-withdtd | xml [options] InputFile


The InputFile argument is the XML document to validate. If a reference to a DTD exists in the XML document, the --dtd option is not required.

To validate multiple documents, either: (i) list the files to be validated on the CLI, with each file separated from the next by a space; or (ii) list the files to be validated in a text file (.txt file), with one filename per line, and supply this text file as the InputFile argument together with the --listfile option set to true (see the Options list below).



Examples of the valxml-withdtd command:


raptorxml valxml-withdtd --dtd=c:\MyDTD.dtd c:\Test.xml

raptorxml xml c:\Test.xml

raptorxml xml --verbose=true c:\Test.xml

raptorxml xml --listfile=true c:\FileList.txt




Options are listed in short form (if available) and long form. You can use one or two dashes for both short and long forms. An option may or may not take a value. If it takes a value, it is written like this: --option=value. Values can be specified without quotes except in two cases: (i) when the value string contains spaces, or (ii) when explicitly stated in the description of the option that quotes are required. If an option takes a Boolean value and no value is specified, then the option's default value is TRUE. Use the --h, --help option to display information about the command.
