digitalmars.D - Docbook templates for ddoc?

reply "David Wilson" <dw botanicus.net> writes:
Does anyone know if such things exist? It's probably simply enough to
just reimplement anyway. To be clear, that's for converting from ddoc
documentation to something like
http://docbook.org/tdg5/en/html/docbook.html

Thanks,


David.

It has (at the moment) foundered on the shoals of my not knowing Latex very well at all. In fact, about all I can do with it is use a template that Andrei was kind enough to make for me <g>. P.S. Part of my problems with Latex stem from it simply not working under Windows. All kinds of freezes and crashes, nonsensical error messages, and extension packages that won't install. Obviously, to use Latex you need to be running on Linux. I am running ubuntu now, but am not motivated at the moment to pick up Latex again.

Publish what you have darn it! <said in a joking tone> Is the whole D spec in the dsource svn repo? If you put it there along with the ddoc templates I'm sure someone would pick it up.

Putting the doc in svn is probably the next step.

I second that. MikTex is great. I've never had any problems with cygwin's latex either, though.

Temporarily dropping my no-posting self-censure (that didn't take long!), I just did my honours thesis using MikTeX, and it flawlessly handled LaTeX, plain TeX and CWEB. I also used various packages with LaTeX, all of which it located and installed for me without a hitch. On the other hand, I've never been able to successfully use the Cygwin TeX packages. Ok, shutting up again :) -- Daniel

I used miktex, which refuses to install some packages one the fly (I had to download and unzip them manually), and the viewer crashes/locks up on even simple files.
