recovering command


recovering expression


If the expression evaluates to non-zero value, turn on the recovering parser mode on; turn it off otherwise. Defaults to off.

Note, that the in the recovering mode, validation is not performed by the parser even if the validation flag is on.

The recover mode helps to efficiently recover documents that are almost well-formed. This for example includes documents without a close tag for the document element (or any other element inside the document).

This command is equivalent to setting the $RECOVERING variable.
