Name

pegasus-dax-validator — determines if a given DAX file is valid.

Synopsis

pegasus-dax-validator daxfile [verbose]

Description

The pegasus-dax-validator is a simple application that determines, if a given DAX file is valid XML. For this, it parses the file with as many XML validity checks that the Apache Xerces XML parser framework supports.

Options

daxfile
The location of the file containing the DAX.
verbose
If any kind of second argument was specified, not limited to the string verbose, the verbose output mode is switched on.

Return Value

If the DAX was parsed successfully, or only warning’s were issued, the exit code is 0. Any 'error or fatal error will result in an exit code of 1.

Additionally, a summary statistics with counts of warnings, errors, and fatal errors will be displayed.

Example

The following shows the parsing of a DAX file that uses the wrong kind of value for certain enumerations. The output shows the errors with the respective line number and column number of the input DAX file, so that one can find and fix them more easily. (The lines in the example were broken to fit the manpage format.)
