Re: [xml-dev] element census tool?

That doesn't look like it includes the attributes listing, nor the path to each element, as in the original request.

Heck, 1-liners are easy if you simplify requirements ;)

import sys, amara; doc = amara.parse(sys.argv[1]); print [ e.xml_qname for e in doc.xml_select('//*')]"

Note: above includes the details of actually loading the file.  I suspect you might have to specify a bit more in the xmlsh example?

There’s always the XQuery approach

( example in xmlsh)


xquery  -q  ‘ distinct-values( //node-name(.) ) ‘

Oh what the heck.  I might as well offer a quick and dirty Amara [1] recipe.


import sys


import amara

from amara.lib.util import element_subtree_iter

from amara.xpath.util import abspath


doc = amara.parse(sys.argv[1])

top_prefixes = dict(doc.xml_select('*')[0].xml_namespaces)

for e in element_subtree_iter(doc):

    print abspath(e, prefixes=top_prefixes)

    attrs = dict(e.xml_attributes)

    if attrs:

        print '\t', attrs



So for example:



            {(None, u'version'): u'1.0'}



            {(None, u'folded'): u'yes'}


            {(None, u'folded'): u'yes'}



            {(None, u'href'): u'http://www.sciam.com/1999/0599issue/0599bosak.html'}


Pretty easy to tweak or format and details of report, etc.


In the example above I pass along a URL.  You can also pass along a file name, if you like.
