xmllint is a command-line tool for parsing XML documents. It is part of the Gnome libxml2 package. tkxmllint is a GUI version of that tool.

Download and Installation
  1. Unpack the distribution.

    • Windows users: use WinZip and extract the zip file.

    • Mac users: StuffIt Expander will decompress the disk image and mount it on your desktop.

  2. Use the program.

    • Windows users: The distribution unpacks into a new directory called tkxmllint-1.7. Double-click the tkxmllint.exe program inside that directory.

      NB. If you want to move the application to a new location, you must move the entire directory - not just the executable file.

    • Mac users: Copy the tkxmllint application to your Applications folder.

  1. Use the "browse" button to locate an XML document. A future release will allow a HTTP URL to be entered.

  2. Set the controls, such as validation and display. Future releases will support more of the standard xmllint options.

  3. Press the "Check" button to read the document.

Known Problems
