./textproc/p5-sdf, Simple Document Format to generate multiple output formats

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.001, Package name: p5-sdf-2.001, Maintainer: schmonz

SDF (Simple Document Format) is a freely available document development
system which generates high quality outputs in a variety of formats from
a single source. The output formats supported include PostScript, HTML,
POD, plain text, man pages, LaTeX, SGML, Windows help, MIF and RTF. If
the idea of specifying documents in a logical manner via a simple markup
language sounds appealing, SDF may be useful to you.

SDF documents are simple to create and maintain, minimising the time
spent on documentation. In particular, SDF directly supports the
creation and maintenance of large, on-line documentation systems
(including intranets) via centralised hypertext management and
rule-based hypertext generation.

Log message:
Update to 2.001, noticed via repology. From the changelog:

Enhancements
------------

- Level 0 headings
- New command line options
- Table enhancements
- HTMLDOC support
- Improved LaTeX support
- HTML formatting enhancements
- HTML meta information and stylesheet support
- Stylesheet-friendly HTML generation
- Embedded documentation enhancements
- Miscellaneous stuff

Fixes
-----

Indented tables now work as expected, i.e. leading whitespace at the
beginning of the heading row is now accepted and remaining rows have
that amount of whitespace trimmed.

When generating txt output, leading cell whitespace now works as
expected. Previously, multiple spaces were converted to a single
space.

Attribute values containing ;; no longer have the whitespace around
the character sequence trimmed.

Internally, unhandled internal directives no longer produce a warning.
(As a result, it's now easier to extend things without "breaking"
existing drivers.)

When generating HTML, the HTML_PRE_SECTION is no longer prepended
unless a table of contents is generated.

Incompatibilities
-----------------

When HTML is generated, the default footer no longer contains a line.
To get the old behaviour, set the HTML_OLD_FOOTERS variable, e.g.

       sdf -2html -DHTML_OLD_FOOTERS ...

The HTML driver no longer uses special embedded comments to work out
where to put the table of contents.

The getcli macro no longer searches the include path: it just executes
the command.
