XML / XSD Schema validation on Mac OS X

January 16, 2009 by Michael

I found no fancy graphical xml validator on OS X, but this isn’t a problem.

OS X includes libxml which comes with xmllint.

To validate a xml file against a schema:

xmllint --noout --schema sitemap.xsd sitemap.xml

    when I used the code “xmllint –noout –schema sitemap.xsd sitemap.xml” for validating the XML against xsd, I got the message as “Segmentation fault”.

    Can I get any help on this.
