This module exports procedures for transforming a limited subset of the SXML representation of docbook into stexi. It is not complete by any means. The intention is to gather a number of routines and stylesheets so that external modules can parse specific subsets of docbook, for example that set generated by certain tools.
"Flatten" a fragment of sdocbook so that block elements do not nest inside each other.
Docbook is a nested format, where e.g. a
appears inside a
refsect1. Logical divisions in the document are
represented via the tree topology; a
contains all of the elements in its section.
On the contrary, texinfo is a flat format, in which sections are marked
off by standalone section headers like
@subsection, and block
elements do not nest inside each other.
This function takes a nested sdocbook fragment sdocbook and flattens all of the sections, such that e.g.
(refsect1 (refsect2 (para "Hello")))
((refsect1) (refsect2) (para "Hello"))
Oftentimes (always?) sectioning elements have
<title> as their
first element child; users interested in processing the
elements into proper sectioning elements like
chapter might be
See replace-titles, and filter-empty-elements.
Returns a nodeset; that is to say, an untagged list of stexi elements. See SXPath, for the definition of a nodeset.
Filters out empty elements in an sdocbook nodeset. Mostly useful after
Iterate over the sdocbook nodeset sdocbook-fragment, transforming
title elements into the appropriate
texinfo sectioning command. Most useful after having run
(replace-titles '((refsect1) (title "Foo") (para "Bar."))) ⇒ '((chapter "Foo") (para "Bar."))
