Parameter values are assigned on the command line as explained in Section 2.3. They are as follows:
out = <location>(uk.ac.starlink.util.Destination)
validate = true|false(Boolean)
votlint's own checks, it is validated against an appropriate version of the VOTable DTD which picks up such things as the presence of unknown elements and attributes, elements in the wrong place, and so on.

Setting this flag false prevents this validation step so that only

version = 1.0|1.1|1.2|1.3|1.4(uk.ac.starlink.votable.VOTableVersion)
If no value is provided for this parameter (the default), the version will be determined from the VOTable itself.
votable = <location>(InputStream)
