Re: [xep-support] XML catalogs in XEP

Hello Alexander (and many others with excellent tips),

your hints helped a lot. Being on Debian, I could install the xml-commons
tools by simply doing:

  apt-get install libxml-commons-resolver1.1-java

I then modified your xep.bat (as I am on Linux), which seems to work fine
now. I attach it in case there are other Linux users who may find it useful.

What I don't quite understand is where you define the fact that the file is to be read in the /usr/local/XEP/lib
directory. (I am asking this because I had another script that embeds an
XEP call, and this one complains about "Cannot find")
