HtmlConvFileToFile

This program converts an input file to an output file using Java API calls in HTML Export, and a template file. See Set Conversion Options by Using the Template Files for more information on template files. The program is available in C# (HtmlConvFileToFile.cs) for .NET and Java (HtmlConvFileToFile.java).

This program demonstrates the following functions:

Run HtmlConvFileToFile on Windows

To run HtmlConvFileToFile on Windows

  1. For the Java version of the program, set INSTALL_DIR to the Export SDK installation directory in the HtmlConvFileToFile.bat file.

  2. In the first line of the HtmlSampleConfig_nt.txt file, specify the path to the template file used in the conversion. You can use the template files in the install\htmlexport\programs\ini directory, where install is the path name of the Export installation directory. If you are processing XML files, specify the location of the kvxconfig.ini file. This is in the bin directory.

  3. In the second line of the HtmlSampleConfig_nt.txt file, specify the path to the Export SDK\bin directory.

  4. Copy HtmlSampleConfig_nt.txt to HtmlSampleConfig.txt.

  5. For the Java version of the program, run the batch file in the install\javaapi\sample directory. Type the following:

    HtmlConvFileToFile inputfileoutputfile

    For the .NET version of the program, compile the program in Visual Studio and run the program from the Export bin directory:

    HtmlConvFileToFile.exe inputfileoutputfile

    where:

    inputfile is the path and file name of the source file.

    outputfile is the path and file name of the generated HTML file.

Run HtmlConvFileToFile on UNIX

To run HtmlConvFileToFile on UNIX

  1. In the HtmlConvFileToFile.csh file, set MKENV to the platform on which you are running, either _hpux11, _ilnx21, _rs6k43, or _ssol26.

  2. In the HtmlConvFileToFile.csh file, set INSTALL_DIR to the Export installation directory.

  3. In the first line of the HtmlSampleConfig_unix.txt file, specify the path to the template file used in the conversion. You can use the template files in the install/htmlexpt/programs/unix/ini, where install is the path name of the Export installation directory. If you are processing XML files, specify the location of the kvxconfig.ini file. This is stored in the bin directory.

  4. In the second line of the HtmlSampleConfig_unix.txt file, specify the path to the ExportSDK/bin directory.

    NOTE: Note: If you have copied the HtmlSampleConfig_unix.txt and C shell file from a Windows system or edited the files on a Windows system, remove the carriage returns from these files. You can use a utility such as the ColdFusion function stripcr() (http://www.macromedia.com) to do this. This step is not required if the files are taken from the UNIX installation.
  5. Copy HtmlSampleConfig_unix.txt to HtmlSampleConfig.txt.

  6. Run the C shell file in the install/javaapi/sample directory. Type the following:

    ./HtmlConvFileToFile.csh inputfileoutputfile

    where:

    inputfile is the path and file name of the source file.

    outputfile is the path and file name of the generated HTML file.

    If a path is not specified, the HTML file is output to the current directory.
