The w2x command-line utility

If the .dmg distribution has been used to install XMLmind Word To XML on the Mac, the w2x command-line utility is found in WordToXML.app/Contents/Resources/w2x/bin/.

Usage: w2x [-version] [-v|-vv] [Options] [-liststeps] in_docx_file out_file

Options are:

-o format
This option automatically adds all the steps needed to convert input DOCX file to an output file having specified format.
Possible formats: docbook, docbook5, topic, map, bookmap, xhtml_css (single-page styled HTML, that is, single-page XHTML+CSS), xhtml_strict, xhtml_loose, xhtml1_1, xhtml5, frameset (multi-page styled HTML), frameset_strict (multi-page XHTML 1.0 Strict), frameset_loose (multi-page XHTML 1.0 Transitional), frameset1_1 (multi-page XHTML 1.1), frameset5 (multi-page XHTML 5.0), webhelp (Web Help containing styled HTML), webhelp_strict (Web Help containing XHTML 1.0 Strict), webhelp_loose (Web Help containing XHTML 1.0 Transitional), webhelp1_1 (Web Help containing XHTML 1.1), webhelp5 (Web Help containing XHTML 5.0), epub (EPUB 2 containing styled XHTML 1.1), epub1_1 (EPUB 2 containing semantic XHTML 1.1).
The default output format is: xhtml_css (single-page styled HTML, that is, single-page XHTML+CSS).
-p name value
Set parameter name to value.
Use parameter step_name.param_name to parametrize the step called step_name.
Because they are used to parameterize named steps, the order of –p and –pu options relatively to options specifying conversions steps (-c, -e, -t, -step, etc) is not significant. For example: “-p convert.charset UTF-8 -c” is equivalent to “-c -p convert.charset UTF-8”.
-pu name URL_or_file
Same as -p, except that parameter value URL_or_file is first converted to an URL.
URL_or_file is an absolute or relative URL (relative to current -f options file if any, to current working directory otherwise) or the filename of an existing file or directory.
-c
Add or replace “convert” step. This step converts input DOCX file to an in-memory XHTML +CSS document.
-l
Add or replace “load” step. This step, mainly used to test XED scripts, loads input XML file.
-e xed_URL_or_file
Add or replace “edit” step. This step edits in place input XHTML document using XED script xed_URL_or_file.
-e2 xed_URL_or_file
Add or replace “edit2” step. This step edits in place input XHTML document using XED script xed_URL_or_file.
-t xslt_URL_or_file
Add or replace “transform” step. This step transforms input XML document or file using XSLT stylesheet xslt_URL_or_file.
The output file is specified by parameter transform.out-file.
-t2 xslt_URL_or_file
Add or replace “transform2” step. This step transforms input XML document or file using XSLT stylesheet xslt_URL_or_file.
The output file is specified by parameter transform2.out-file.
-s
Add or replace “save” step. This step saves to disk input XHTML document.
The output file is specified by parameter save.out-file.
-step:java_class_name:step_name
Add or replace step called step_name by an instance of Java™ class java_class_name deriving from com.xmlmind.w2x.processor.ProcessStep.
-f options_URL_or_file
Load one or more of the above options from options_URL_or_file, a plain UTF-8 text file
-v
-vv
-vvv
Verbose. More Vs means more verbose.
-version
Print version number and exit.
-liststeps
List the conversion steps to be executed and exit. This option is useful to determine how to customize the conversion steps. Example:
$ w2x -o bookmap -liststeps
-step:com.xmlmind.w2x.processor.ConvertStep:convert
-p convert.create-mathml-object no
-p convert.set-column-number yes
-step:com.xmlmind.w2x.processor.EditStep:edit
-p edit.xed-url-or-file file:/opt/w2x/xed/main.xed
-step:com.xmlmind.w2x.processor.TransformStep:transform
-p transform.out-file %{~pnO}.dita
-p transform.single-topic no
-p transform.xslt-url-or-file file:/opt/w2x/xslt/topic.xslt
-step:com.xmlmind.w2x.processor.TransformStep:transform2
-p transform2.xslt-url-or-file file:/opt/w2x/xslt/bookmap.xslt
-p transform2.topic-type %{transform.topic-type}
-p transform2.output-path %{~po}
-step:com.xmlmind.w2x.processor.DeleteFilesStep:cleanUp
-p cleanUp.files %{~pnO}.dita
