Caching of DocBook DTDs

— Posted by hazard @ 2005-04-20 22:21
To my surprise I have discovered that whenever I create a PDF from DocBook using docbook2pdf, it fetches DTDs from the Net. This process makes PDF generation slower by 3-4 times. Some Googling resulted in buildDocBookCatalog script which can be downloaded from xmlsoft.org. It creates a catalog file which contains mapping from URLs to locally cached DTD files.
