B.6.1 Usage

The usage of datalinklint is

   stilts <stilts-flags> datalinklint format=text|json report=[EWISF]+
                                      maxrepeat=<int-value>
                                      truncate=<int-value> debug=true|false
                                      [votable=]<filename>|<URL>|-
If you don't have the stilts script installed, write "java -jar stilts.jar" instead of "stilts" - see Section 3. The available <stilts-flags> are listed in Section 2.1. For programmatic invocation, the Task class for this command is uk.ac.starlink.ttools.task.DatalinkLint.

Parameter values are assigned on the command line as explained in Section 2.3. They are as follows:

debug = true|false       (Boolean)
If true, debugging output including stack traces will be output along with the normal validation messages.

[Default: false]

format = text|json       (OutputReporter)
Determines the format of the output. Possible values are text, json.

Note not all of the other parameters may be applicable to all output formats.

[Default: text]

maxrepeat = <int-value>       (Integer)
Puts a limit on the number of times that a single message will be repeated. By setting this to some reasonably small number, you can ensure that the output does not get cluttered up by millions of repetitions of essentially the same error.

[Default: 9]

report = [EWISF]+       (String)
Letters indicating which message types should be listed. Each character of the string is one of the letters E, W, I, S, F with the following meanings:

[Default: EWISF]

truncate = <int-value>       (Integer)
Limits the line length written to the output.

[Default: 640]

votable = <filename>|<URL>|-       (String)
Location of the DataLink VOTable document to check. This may be a URL, or a filename, or the special value "-" to indicate standard input.
