./textproc/mdocml, Convert man pages from mdoc, man, and tbl to txt, html, ps, or pdf

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.13.1nb1, Package name: mdocml-1.13.1nb1, Maintainer: kristaps

The mdocml = mandoc manual page parser and formatter contains:
* complete validating parsers for the mdoc and man languages
* a slightly incomplete parser handling most of the tbl language
* a very incomplete parser handling a part of the eqn language
* support for a few selected roff requests that often occur in manuals
* complete ASCII, UTF8, HTML and XHTML text output formatters
* simple PostScript and PDF output formatters
* output formatters producing indented mdoc and man parse trees

To format manuals for console display, it can be used as a smaller
and faster drop-in replacement for nroff -mandoc. Some rare manuals
using lots of uncommon low-level roff requests may not work with
mandoc but require a full roff implementation.

Update to 1.13.1:

Changes in version 1.13.1, released on August 10, 2014

    --- MAJOR NEW FEATURES ---
 * A complete apropos(1)/makewhatis(8)/man.cgi(8) suite
   based on SQLite3 is now included.
   CAVEAT: This also requires a working fts(3) implementation.
   If your system lacks that *and* you want apropos(1)/makewhatis(8),
   stay with 1.12.3 for now, then go to 1.12.4 and 1.13.2.
   [wiz: for this reason, the package does not enable these tools yet]
 * The roff(7) parser now provides an almost complete implementation
   of numerical expressions.
 * Warning and error messages have been improved in many ways.
   Almost all fatal errors were downgraded to normal errors and some
   even to warnings.  Almost all messages now mention the macro where
   the issue is detected and many indicate the workaround employed.
   The mandoc(1) manual now includes a list explaining all messages.
    --- MINOR NEW FEATURES ---
 * The roff(7) parser now supports the .ami (append to macro with
   indirectly specified name), .as (append to user-defined
   string), .dei (define macro with indirectly specified name),
   .ll (line length), and .rr (remove register) requests.
 * The roff(7) parser now supports string comparison and numerical
   conditionals in the .if and .ie requests.
 * The roff parser now fully supports the \B (validate numerical
   expression) and partially supports the \w (measure text width)
   escape sequences.
 * The terminal formatter now supports the \: (optional line break)
   escape sequence.
 * The roff parser now supports expansion of user-defined strings
   involving indirect references.
 * The roff(7) parser now handles some pre-defined read-only
   number registers that occur in the pod2man(1) preamble.
 * For backward compatibility, the mdoc(7) parser and formatters
   now support the obsolete macros .En, .Es, .Fr, and .Ot.
 * The mdoc(7) formatter non partially supports .Bd -centered.
 * tbl(7) now handles leading and trailing vertical lines.
 * The build system now provides fallback versions of strcasestr(3)
   and strsep(3) for systems lacking them.
 * The mdoc(7) manual now explains how various standards
   supported by the .St macro are related to each other.
    --- BUGFIXES ---
 * In the roff(7) parser, several bugs were fixed with respect
   to closing conditional blocks on macro lines.
 * Parsing of roff(7) identifiers and escape sequences was improved
   in multiple respects.
 * In the mdoc(7) parser, the handling of defective document
   prologues was improved in multiple ways.
 * The mdoc(7) parser no longer skips content before the first section
   header, and it no longer deletes non-.% content from .Rs blocks.
 * In the mdoc(7) parser, a crash was fixed related to weird .Sh headers.
 * In the mdoc(7) parser, handling of .Sm with missing or invalid
   arguments was corrected.
 * In the mdoc(7) parser, trailing punctuation at the end of partial
   implicit macros no longer triggers end-of-sentence spacing.
 * In the terminal formatter, two crashes were fixed: one triggered by
   excessive indentation and another by excessively long .Nm arguments.
 * In the terminal formatter, a floating point rounding bug was
   fixed that sometimes caused an off-by-one error in indentation.
 * In the UTF-8 formatter, rendering of accents, breakable hyphens,
   and non-breakable spaces was corrected.
 * In the HTML formatter, encoding of special characters was
   corrected in multiple respects.
 * In the mdoc(7) formatter, rendering of .Ex and .Rv was
   improved for various edge cases.
 * In the mdoc(7) formatter, handling of empty .Bl -inset item
   heads was improved.
 * In the man(7) formatter, some bugs were fixed with respect
   to same-line detection in the context of .TP and .nf macros,
   and the indentation of .IP and .TP blocks was improved.
 * The mandoc(3) library no longer prints to stderr.

Update to 1.12.3:

Changes in version 1.12.3, released on December 31, 2013

 * In the mdoc(7) SYNOPSIS, line breaks and hanging indentation
   now work correctly for .Fo/.Fa/.Fc and .Fn blocks.
   Thanks to Franco Fichtner for doing part of the work.
 * The mdoc(7) .Bk macro got some addititonal bugfixes.
 * In mdoc(7) macro arguments, double quotes can now be quoted
   by doubling them, just like in man(7).
   Thanks to Tsugutomo ENAMI for the patch.
 * At the end of man(7) macro lines, end-of-sentence spacing
   now works.  Thanks to Franco Fichtner for the patch.
 * For backward compatibility, the man(7) parser now supports the
   man-ext .UR/.UE (uniform resource identifier) block macros.
 * The man(7) parser now handles closing blocks that are not open
   more gracefully.
 * The man(7) parser now ignores blank lines right after .SH and .SS.
 * In the man(7) formatter, reset indentation when leaving a block,
   not just when entering the next one.
 * The roff(7) .nr request now supports incrementing and decrementing
   number registers and stops parsing the number right before the
   first non-digit character.
 * The roff(7) parser now supports the alternative escape sequence
   syntax \C'uXXXX' for Unicode characters.
 * The roff(7) parser now parses and ignores the .fam (font family)
   and .hw (hyphenation points) requests and the \d and \u escape
   sequences.
 * The roff(7) manual got a new ESCAPE SEQUENCE REFERENCE.
