       The program follows the  usual  GNU  command  line  syntax,  with  long
       options starting with two dashes (‘-’).

       -h, --help
                 Show detailed help message.

       -V, --version
                 Display version information and exit.

       -v, --validate
                 DTD validate the input file as it is being parsed.

       -i, --ignore
                 Ignore <?xml-stylesheet ...?> instructions.

                 Set media to honor in xml-stylesheet PIs.

       -D, --define=NAME=VALUE
                 Bind a top-level parameter.

       -P, --prefix=PREFIX=NSURI
                 Assign a namespace to a prefix used in a top-level parameter.

       -I, --alt-sty-path=PATH
                 Same as --alt-sty-uri but uses OS path.

                 Define an add’l base URI for imports & includes.

       -o, --outfile=FILE
                 Direct  transformation  output  to   FILE   (file   will   be
                 overwritten if it exists).

       -e, --stacktrace-on-error
                 Display a stack trace when an error occurs.

                 Do not expand XIncludes in source document and stylesheet.

       --trace   Send execution trace output to stderr or file set by --trace-

                 Trace file for execution trace output when using --trace.

       --reflex  Reflexive  transform  (the  stylesheet  is  also  the  source

       --compile Compile  an  instant  stylesheet.  The  result  is written to
                 stdout, unless -o is used.

       --instant The stylesheet is "instant" (compiled). Only  one  stylesheet
                 can be specified with this option.

       --chain   Chain  the stylesheets (result of transforming with the first
                 is the source document for transforming with the second,  and
                 so  on).  Without  this  option,  each  extra  stylesheet  is
                 imported by the preceding one.

       --time    Display the elapsed transformation time on stderr.

                 Prepend string to xsl:message output.

                 Append string to xsl:message output.

                 Suppress xsl:message output and warnings.

                 The URI of the XML document to transform, or "-" to  indicate
                 standard input. If using --reflex, it is also the stylesheet.
                 If using --compile, it is the stylesheet to compile.

                 The URI(s) of the stylesheet(s) to apply.
