./textproc/zoem, Interpretive macro/programming language

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 11.166, Package name: zoem-11.166, Maintainer: cheusov

Zoem is an interpretive macro language with substantial facilities for
programming. It supports a two-stage process, consisting of macro
interpretation (featuring inside-out evaluation if needed), followed
by a simple and powerful application of stream character filtering.

Its syntax is remindful of \it{TeX}'s, it has dictionary stacks like
\it{PostScript}, and various resemblances to \it{m4} and \it{info}.
It has interfaces to modules making life easy \- counters, references,
arithmetic, multi-dimensional data storage, input/output operations,
regular expressions, and system commands.

Zoem is used for creating extendible dummy mark-up languages and
mapping those to real mark-up languages. The dummy languages have all
the power of the zoem primitives available to them. A prime
application is the creation of little mark-up languages that allow
easy preparation of documents for use with different devices.
Examples are the PUD \bf{faq} language and the PUD \bf{man} language,
both of which can be used to generate troff output and html
output. PUD stands for Portable Unix Documentation and is shipped with
Aephea. Aephea itself is an abstraction layer for creating concise
and maintainable HTML documents.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for textproc category

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package cabocha: missing distfile cabocha-0.68.tar.bz2
	Package convertlit: missing distfile clit18src.zip
	Package php-enchant: missing distfile php-enchant/enchant-1.1.0.tgz

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Update zoem to 11.166
   *  zoem-11-166 released.

   *  The default search path was changed. The obsolete PREFIX/zoem/mac
      component was dropped, and PREFIX/aephea was added.  Now, if zoem and
      aephea are both configured with the same prefix for installation (e.g.
      --prefix=/usr/local or --prefix=$HOME/local), then aephea include
      -- files
      will be found automatically by zoem.

   *  set#3 can now splice into a variable (that is, the string
      refered to by a macro). This is achieved by pairing the respective
      keys {start} and {width} with appropriate values in the first
      argument to set#3. The start position is relative to an offst
      of zero, so

      \set{foo}{kaboom}
      \set{{start}{2}{width}{3}}{foo}{za}
      '\foo'

      yields 'kazam'.

   *  The example zoem solution 8q2.azm to the N queens problem
      has been updated. It now pretty-prints asciific chess boards using the
      new splice mode to set#3.

   *  Small documentation fixes.
