<s1 title="Sample: SAXCount">
<s2 title="SAXCount">
<p>SAXCount is the simplest application that counts the elements and characters of
a given XML file using the (event based) SAX API.</p>
<s3 title="Running SAXCount">
<p>The SAXCount sample parses an XML file and prints out the number of
elements in the file. To run SAXCount, enter the following </p>
<source>SAXCount &lt;XML File&gt;</source>
<p>The following parameters may be set from the command line </p>
SAXCount [options] &lt;XML file | List file&gt;
This program invokes the SAX Parser, and then prints the
number of elements, attributes, spaces and characters found
in each XML file, using SAX API.
-l Indicate the input file is a List File that has a list of xml files.
Default to off (Input file is an XML file).
-v=xxx Validation scheme [always | never | auto*].
-n Enable namespace processing. Defaults to off.
-s Enable schema processing. Defaults to off.
-f Enable full schema constraint checking. Defaults to off.
-locale=ll_CC specify the locale, default: en_US
-? Show this help.
* = Default if not provided explicitly.
<p><em>-v=always</em> will force validation<br/>
<em>-v=never</em> will not use any validation<br/>
<em>-v=auto</em> will validate if a DOCTYPE declaration or a schema declaration is present in the XML document</p>
<p>Here is a sample output from SAXCount</p>
<source>cd &XercesC3InstallDir;/samples/data
SAXCount -v=always personal.xml
personal.xml: 60 ms (37 elems, 12 attrs, 134 spaces, 134 chars)</source>
<p>Running SAXCount with the validating parser gives a different result because
ignorable white-space is counted separately from regular characters.</p>
<source>SAXCount -v=never personal.xml
personal.xml: 10 ms (37 elems, 12 attrs, 0 spaces, 268 chars)</source>
<p>Note that the sum of spaces and characters in both versions is the same.</p>
<note>The time reported by the program may be different depending on your
processor speed.</note>
