Wiki source for Commands

Show raw source


The following commands come with xmlsh.
As a naming convention, commands that start with "x" operate intrinsically on xml data (either as input or output and usually both).
Commands not starting with "x" generally don't operate on xml data exclusively (either as input or output).

Commands where Streaming is "Yes" are fully streamable in the sense that a fixed amount of memory is used regardless of the input size, and output can appear before the input has been completely read. Note this is independent from the capability of [[XDMStreaming XDM Streaming]].

Note: if your xmlsh scripts include only commands from this list they will be portable across all OS's which support xmlsh and have no dependency on OS commands.
