       s1kd-tools - Tools for S1000D data

       S1000D  is "an international specification for the procurement and pro‐
       duction of technical publications", part of the S-Series of ILS  speci‐
       fications.   The  main focus of S1000D is the breakdown and classifica‐
       tion of documents in to individual components, called  "data  modules",
       which  can be re-used in multiple publications.  These data modules are
       typically authored using a set of provided XML schemas,  allowing  them
       to be automatically managed in a Common Source Database (CSDB) and val‐
       idated against a defined set of project "business rules".

       The s1kd-tools are a set of small tools for creating  and  manipulating
       S1000D  data.   They  are designed to be used as a standalone method of
       maintaining a simple S1000D CSDB, in conjunction with  a  more  typical
       version  control system such as Git or SVN, as a backend to implement a
       more complex S1000D CSDB, or to support an existing S1000D CSDB already
       in use by a project.

       Common  Source Databases can be implemented in any number of ways.  For
       the purposes of the s1kd-tools, the CSDB is simply a directory within a
       filesystem.   Use  of the "File-based transfer" file naming conventions
       in Chap 7 of the S1000D specification are recommended, and most of  the
       tools  will use these conventions when creating or listing CSDB objects
       represented by files.  In order to use these tools in  conjuction  with
       other  implementations  of  CSDBs,  a project can make use of "transfer
       packages" also described in Chap 7 to  facilitate  interchange  between
       the two kinds of CSDB.

   Relationship to the S1000D process
       The s1kd-tools can support multiple parts of the basic S1000D process:

       1. Generation:  The  generation of new CSDB objects is supported by the
          s1kd-dmrl tool and the s1kd-new* set of tools.   These  provide  two
          methods of creating objects, either using a data management require‐
          ments list (DMRL) or a more on-the-fly approach using the  s1kd-new*
          tools directly.

           The  s1kd-defaults  tool  is used to manage the files which contain
           default metadata for new CSDB objects.

       2. Authoring: These tools support the authoring process.

           The s1kd-addicn tool creates the notation and  entity  elements  to
           reference an ICN in a data module.

           The s1kd-ls tool lists data modules within a directory.

           The  s1kd-metadata tool lists and edits S1000D metadata on CSDB ob‐

           The s1kd-mvref tool changes references to one  object  into  refer‐
           ences to another.

           The s1kd-ref tool can be used to quickly insert references to other
           CSDB objects.

           The s1kd-sns tool can be used to organize the CSDB  using  a  given
           SNS structure.

           The  s1kd-upissue  tool  moves  CSDB  objects  through the standard
           S1000D workflow, between "inwork" (draft) and "official" states.

       3. Validation: These tools all validate different aspects of  CSDB  ob‐

           The s1kd-appcheck tool validates the applicability of CSDB objects.

           The  s1kd-brexcheck  tool validates CSDB objects against a business
           rules exchange (BREX) data module, which contains  the  project-de‐
           fined computable business rules.

           The  s1kd-refs tool lists references in a CSDB object to generate a
           list of dependencies on other CSDB objects.

           The s1kd-repcheck tool validates CIR references in CSDB objects.

           The s1kd-validate tool validates CSDB objects  according  to  their
           S1000D schema and general correctness as XML documents.

       4. Publication: These tools support the production of publications from
          a CSDB.

           The s1kd-acronyms tool can automatically mark  up  acronyms  within
           data  modules,  and  can  also generate lists of acronyms marked up
           within data modules.

           The s1kd-aspp tool preprocesses applicability statements in a  data
           module,  generating  display  text and "presentation" applicability

           The s1kd-flatten tool flattens a publication module and  referenced
           data  modules  in  to  a single "deliverable" file for a publishing

           The s1kd-fmgen tool generates front matter data module content from
           a publication module.

           The s1kd-icncatalog tool resolves ICN references in objects.

           The  s1kd-index tool flags index keywords in a data module based on
           a user-defined list.

           The s1kd-instance tool produces "instances" of CSDB  objects  using
           applicability  filtering  and/or  common  information  repositories

           The s1kd-neutralize tool generates IETP neutral metadata  for  CSDB

           The  s1kd-syncrefs  tool generates the References table within data

           The s1kd-uom tool converts units of measure used in data modules.
