Troff template (batteries included)
This repository is an introduction to the good old tools to produce documents:
roffas the language to describe documents (
groffis the implementation)
tbland hdtbl for tables
eqnfor math equations
picfor drawing images
grapfor drawing graphs
referfor handling references and bibliography
It also includes a few examples of custom macros and images.
Furthermore, this repository includes:
- UTF-8 characters translation into ms macros (via a script)
- source code highlight (via the
source-highlightsoftware and a script)
- A makefile to automatically call every tool in right order; just type
