OpenSP-1.5.2

Introduction to OpenSP

The OpenSP package contains a C++ library for using SGML/XML files. This is useful for validating, parsing and manipulating SGML and XML documents.

This package is known to build and work properly using an LFS-7.6 systemd platform.

Installation of OpenSP

Install OpenSP by running the following commands:

sed -i 's/32,/253,/' lib/Syntax.cxx &&
sed -i 's/LITLEN          240 /LITLEN          8092/' \
    unicode/{gensyntax.pl,unicode.syn} &&

./configure --prefix=/usr                              \
            --disable-static                           \
            --disable-doc-build                        \
            --enable-default-catalog=/etc/sgml/catalog \
            --enable-http                              \
            --enable-default-search-path=/usr/share/sgml &&

make pkgdatadir=/usr/share/sgml/OpenSP-1.5.2

To test the results, issue: make check. As many as nine of the 23 tests may fail. Do not be alarmed.

Now, as the root user:

make pkgdatadir=/usr/share/sgml/OpenSP-1.5.2 install &&
ln -v -sf onsgmls /usr/bin/nsgmls &&
ln -v -sf osgmlnorm /usr/bin/sgmlnorm &&
ln -v -sf ospam /usr/bin/spam &&
ln -v -sf ospcat /usr/bin/spcat &&
ln -v -sf ospent /usr/bin/spent &&
ln -v -sf osx /usr/bin/sx &&
ln -v -sf osx /usr/bin/sgml2xml &&
ln -v -sf libosp.so /usr/lib/libsp.so

Command Explanations

sed -i 's/32,/253,/...unicode.syn}: These seds prevent some annoying messages that may otherwise appear while running openjade.

--disable-static: This switch prevents the building of the static library.

--enable-http: This switch adds support for HTTP.

--enable-default-catalog=/etc/sgml/catalog: This switch sets the path to the centralized catalog.

--enable-default-search-path: This switch sets the default value of SGML_SEARCH_PATH.

--enable-xml-messages: This switch adds support for XML Formatted Messages.

--disable-doc-build: This switch prevents the configure script checking if you have xmlto installed. If you have xmlto, you can remove this option.

make pkgdatadir=/usr/share/sgml/OpenSP-1.5.2: This sets the pkgdatadir variable in the Makefile from /usr/share/OpenSP to /usr/share/sgml/OpenSP-1.5.2.

ln -v -sf ...: These commands create the SP equivalents of OpenSP executables and libraries.
