system configuration and common options options



withTrace :: Int -> SysConfigSource

withTace level : system option, set the trace level, (0..4)

withSysAttr :: String -> String -> SysConfigSource

withSysAttr key value : store an arbitarty key value pair in system state

withMimeTypeFile :: String -> SysConfigSource

withMimeTypeFile filename : input option, set the mime type table for file: documents by given file. The format of this config file must be in the syntax of a debian linux "mime.types" config file

withFileMimeType :: String -> SysConfigSource

Force a given mime type for all file contents.

The mime type for file access will then not be computed by looking into a mime.types file

withWarnings :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withWarnings yes/no : system option, issue warnings during reading, HTML parsing and processing, default is yes

withErrors :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withErrors yes/no : system option for suppressing error messages, default is no

withRemoveWS :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withRemoveWS yes/no : read and write option, remove all whitespace, used for document indentation, default is no

withPreserveComment :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withPreserveComment yes/no : read option, preserve comments during canonicalization, default is no

withParseByMimeType :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withParseByMimeType yes/no : read option, select the parser by the mime type of the document (pulled out of the HTTP header).

When the mime type is set to "text/html" the configured HTML parser is taken, when it's set to "text/xml" or "text/xhtml" the configured XML parser is taken. If the mime type is something else, no further processing is performed, the contents is given back to the application in form of a single text node. If the default document encoding is set to isoLatin1, this even enables processing of arbitray binary data.

withParseHTML :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withParseHTML yes/no: read option, use HTML parser, default is no (use XML parser)

withValidate :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withValidate yes/no: read option, validate document against DTD, default is yes

withSubstDTDEntities :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withSubstDTDEntities yes/no: read option, substitute general entities defined in DTD, default is yes. switching this option and the validate option off can lead to faster parsing, because then there is no need to access the DTD

withSubstHTMLEntities :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withSubstHTMLEntities yes/no: read option, substitute general entities defined in HTML DTD, default is no. switching this option on and the substDTDEntities and validate options off can lead to faster parsing because there is no need to access a DTD, but still the HTML general entities are substituted

withCheckNamespaces :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withCheckNamespaces yes/no: read option, check namespaces, default is no

withCanonicalize :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withCanonicalize yes/no : read option, canonicalize document, default is yes

withIgnoreNoneXmlContents :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withIgnoreNoneXmlContents yes/no : input option, ignore document contents of none XML/HTML documents.

This option can be useful for implementing crawler like applications, e.g. an URL checker. In those cases net traffic can be reduced.

withStrictInput :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withStrictInput yes/no : input option, input of file and HTTP contents is read eagerly, default is no

withEncodingErrors :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withEncodingErrors yes/no : input option, ignore all encoding errors, default is no

withInputEncoding :: String -> SysConfigSource

withInputEncoding encodingName : input option

Set default document encoding (utf8, isoLatin1, usAscii, iso8859_2, ... , iso8859_16, ...). Only XML, HTML and text documents are decoded, default decoding for XML/HTML is utf8, for text iso latin1 (no decoding).

withDefaultBaseURI :: String -> SysConfigSource

withDefaultBaseURI URI , input option, set the default base URI

This option can be useful when parsing documents from stdin or contained in a string, and interpreting relative URIs within the document

withRedirect :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withRedirect yes/no : input option, automatically follow redirected URIs, default is yes

withProxy :: String -> SysConfigSource

withProxy "host:port" : input option, configure a proxy for HTTP access, e.g. www-cache:3128

withIndent :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

withIndent yes/no : output option, indent document before output, default is no

withOutputEncoding :: String -> SysConfigSource

withOutputEncoding encoding , output option, default is the default input encoding or utf8, if input encoding is not set

withOutputXML :: SysConfigSource

withOutputXML : output option, default writing

Default is writing XML: quote special XML chars >,<,",',& where neccessary, add XML processing instruction and encode document with respect to withOutputEncoding

withOutputHTML :: SysConfigSource

Write XHTML: quote all special XML chars, use HTML entity refs or char refs for none ASCII chars

withOutputXHTML :: SysConfigSource

Write XML: quote only special XML chars, don't substitute chars by HTML entities, and don't generate empty elements for HTML elements, which may contain any contents, e.g. script src=.../script instead of script src=... /

withOutputPLAIN :: SysConfigSource

suppreses all char and entitiy substitution

withCompression :: (CompressionFct, DeCompressionFct) -> SysConfigSource

Configure compression and decompression for binary serialization/deserialization. First component is the compression function applied after serialization, second the decompression applied before deserialization.

withStrictDeserialize :: Bool -> SysConfigSource

Strict input for deserialization of binary data
