./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: 1.13.4, Package name: mdocml-1.13.4, Maintainer: schwarze

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.

Changes in version 1.13.4, released on July 14, 2016

    --- MAJOR NEW FEATURES ---
 * man.conf(5): Design and implement a simpler configuration file format.
 * man(1): Leverage less(1) -T and :t in a way resembling ctags(1)
   to jump to the definitions of various terms inside manual pages.
 * soelim(1): New implementation by Baptiste Daroussin.
 * privilege limitation: Use OpenBSD pledge(2) or OS X sandbox_init(3)
   when available.
 * man.cgi(8): Support short URIs like http://man.openbsd.org/mdoc .
 * mandoc.css: Use one unified stylesheet rather than three different ones.
    --- MAJOR FUNCTIONALLY RELEVANT BUGFIXES ---
 * mdoc(7): Fix multiple aspects of SYNOPSIS .Nm formatting.
 * man(1): Fix process group handling, avoiding unclean shutdowns.
    --- PORTABILITY IMPROVEMENTS ---
 * Correctly use the ohash(3) compatibility implementation
   even when building without SQLite support.
 * Add compat glue for building on Solaris 9 and 10.
 * Let ./configure select a supported RE syntax for word boundaries.
 * Support LDFLAGS, to be used for example for hardening options.
 * Avoid mixing putchar(3) and putwchar(3) on the same file descriptor,
   it resulted in output corruption on some platforms.
 * Avoid reusing va_lists, use va_copy(3) for better portability.
 * Do not hardcode the path to the more(1) program.
    --- MINOR NEW FEATURES ---
 * roff(7): Implement \n(.$ (number of macro arguments).
 * roff(7): Fully implement \z (do not advance cursor).
 * roff(7): Implement the `r'  conditional (register exists).
 * roff(7): Implement \\$* (interpolate all arguments).
 * roff(7): Parse and ignore \, and \/ (italic corrections).
 * When there is no -m, no -M, no MANPATH and no /etc/man.conf,
   fall back to /usr/share/man:/usr/X11R6/man:/usr/local/man.
 * man(1): Give manuals in purely numerical sections priority over
   manuals of the same name in sections with an alphabetical suffix.
 * man.cgi(8): Support "header.html" and "footer.html".
 * man.cgi(8): Set the "autofocus" attribute on the query text box.
 * man.cgi(8): Simplify the search form, drop two useless buttons.
 * man.cgi(8): Delete the pseudo-manpath "mandoc", assume that
   apropos(1) and man.cgi(8) are installed in the default manpath.
    --- RELIABILITY BUGFIXES ---
 * mdoc(7): Avoid a use after free and an assertion failure when nodes
   are deleted during validation.
 * mdoc(7): Avoid a NULL pointer access when .Bd has no arguments.
 * mdoc(7): Avoid a NULL pointer access triggered by mismatching end macros.
 * mdoc(7): Avoid an assertion when .Fo has no argument.
 * mdoc(7): Avoid an assertion when .Ta<tab> occurs in .Bl -column.
 * mdoc(7): Avoid an assertion when a body gets broken and has a tail.
 * roff(7): Avoid an assertion caused by blanks inside \o.
 * roff(7): Make .so links to gziped manuals work without mandoc.db(5).
 * tbl(7): Avoid a use after free when the last line of a layout is empty.
 * eqn(7): Avoid an infinite loop caused by recursive "define".
 * makewhatis(8): Avoid a segfault caused by unusual directory structures.
 * Fix handling of leading, trailing, and double colons in MANPATH and -m.
    --- MINOR BUGFIXES ---
 * mdoc(7): Put arguments to end macros of broken partial explicit blocks
   inside the breaking block.
 * mdoc(7): Let .Dv force normal font.
 * mdoc(7): Make trailing whitespace significant in .Bl -tag widths.
 * mdoc(7): Fix macro interpretation around tabs in .Bl -column.
 * man(7): Use the default width for .RS without arguments.
 * man(7): On a new RS nesting level, the saved width starts from
   the default width, not from the saved width of the previous level.
 * man(7): Allow .PD in next-line scope.
 * man(7): Improve handling of empty .HP.
 * man(7): Improve formatting of .br and .sp inside .HP.
 * man(7): Do not mistreat empty arguments to font alternating
   macros as vertical spacing requests.
 * man(7): Allow fill mode changes in tagged paragraph next-line scope.
 * man(7): Fix minor bugs in block rewinding and simplify the related code.
 * man(7): Add missing line breaks before subsection headers.
 * man(7): Give section and subsection headers hanging indentation.
 * man(7): Make trailing whitespace significant in .TP widths.
 * roff(7): Don't allow breaking the output line after hyphens
   that immediately follow escape sequences.
 * roff(7): Ignore blank characters at the beginning of conditional blocks.

   database operations like preparing queries or binding variables fail.
    --- STRUCTURAL CHANGES, no functional change ---
