hxprune - Man Page

remove marked elements from an HTML file


hxprune [ -c class ] [ -x ] [ file ]


hxprune removes specially marked elements (with their content and children) from an HTML file. By default it removes elements with a class attribute of "exclude". The class attribute is parsed as a whitespace-separated list of words and if one of those words is "exclude", the element is not copied to the output.


The following options are supported:

-c class

Specify a different class than "exclude".


Force output to be in XML-style, i.e., without short attributes and with a slash (/) to mark empty elements.
