/main/a2ps/a2ps

GNU a2ps - 'Anything to PostScript' converter and pretty-printer

Historically, a2ps started as a text to PostScript converter, but thanks to powerful delegations it is able to let you use it for any kind of files, ie it can also digest manual pages, dvi files, texinfo, .... . Among the other most noticeable features of a2ps are: - various encodings (all the Latins and others), - various fonts (automatic font downloading), - various medias, - various printer interfaces, - various output styles, - various programming languages, - various helping applications, - and various spoken languages.

/main/aephea/aephea

text-based authoring tool for HTML

Aephea is an HTML authoring framework. It enforces HTML well-formedness with a simpler and stricter syntax, provides useful extensions and abstractions as well as facilities for adding new ones, all in a single unified approach that stays close to HTML itself. Some of Aephea's characteristics are a TeX-like syntax, dictionary stacks, iteration and a focus on styling via CSS. . PUD (Portable Unix Documentation) is shipped with Aephea. It provides mini-languages for authoring Unix manual pages and FAQ documents with output both in HTML and troff. . Both Aephea and PUD are written in zoem, a high-level macro/programming language with character filtering capabilities. . If you'd like to generate manpages, but don't like troff syntax, and find Perl's POD too limited, Aephea's PUD is likely useful for you. If you like your documents to be available in both PDF and HTML, but find DocBook XML too heavyweight (and aren't really happy with Docbook XML's baroque default tagnames), you'll like PUD.

"free form" document preparation system

All that needs to be done is to edit a rule file. You can even customize your own HTML rule files for specialized output.
