Initializer

init(data:options:)

Initializes and returns an NSXMLDTD object created from the DTD declarations encapsulated in an NSData object

Declaration

init(data: Data, options mask: XMLNode.Options = []) throws

Parameters

data

A data object containing DTD declarations.

mask

A bit mask specifying input options; bit-OR multiple options. The current valid options are NSXMLNodePreserveWhitespace and NSXMLNodePreserveEntities; these constants are described in the "Constants" section of the XMLNode reference.

error

On return, this parameter holds an NSError object describing any errors and warnings related to parsing and remote connection.

Return Value

An initialized NSXMLDTD object or nil if initialization fails because of parsing errors or other reasons.

Discussion

This method is the designated initializer for the NSXMLDTD class. You use this method to create a stand-alone DTD which you can thereafter query and use for validation. You can associate the DTD created through this message with a document by sending setDTD: to an XMLDocument object.
