Total Validator allows you to perform many different validations on your web pages in one go, rather than using several tools to achieve the same thing.
Total Validator runs on Windows from 2000 upwards, OS X 10.4 and above and most versions of Linux.
Windows: To install simply run the .exe file you downloaded, overwriting any previous installation. To uninstall use the 'Uninstall Total Validator Tool' option in the Start Menu. You must have Java 5.0 or later installed in order to run the tool. If you don't your browser will be directed to the official site to download the latest version. Alternatively download the java add-on from the downloads page. This will provide a local version of Java used just by the tool.
OS X: To install drag the TotalValidatorPro icon into your /Applications folder. To uninstall simply drag this icon into your Trash. You must have Java 5.0 or later installed in order to run the tool. You can verify this using the Java Preferences Utility to ensure that the correct version of Java is being used: Finder > Applications > Utilities > Java Preferences. If the Java Preferences utility does not exist or you have an old version of Java installed, you may be able to download the appropriate Java from the Apple website If the OS X Gatekeeper says that it cannot open Total Validator because it is from an unidentified developer, proceed as follows in Finder :
- Right-click (Control-click) TotalValidatorPro and choose "Open"
- Click the "Open" button at the next dialog warning
Linux: You must have Java 5.0 or later installed first and it must be in your PATH. Type 'java -version' at the command prompt to check this. To install copy the .tar.gz file you downloaded into the directory of your choice and run the following command to create a 'totalvalidatorpro' directory which contains the application:
# tar xvfz totalvalidatorpro.tar.gz
In order to automatically display the results in a browser you may have to amend totalvalidatorpro/default_browser.sh. Use totalvalidatorpro/total_validator.sh to run the tool.
