One bugfix, some new features, and more detailed ‘meta’ spec.
BTW, ‘a2ixin foo.sxml’ works fine under Guile 2.
Getting the .sxml in the first place is the problem, there.
IXIN is an EXPERIMENTAL distribution of EXPERIMENTAL code and
some pre-built IXIN files. IXIN stands for "indexed texinfo".
All code is under GPLv3+. All (.xml) docs are under GFDL.
It defines a documentation file format and provides two simple
tools to write and read, respectively, files in that format.
- 1.2 | 2012-12-03
- bugfix: use ‘pretty-print’ also for index
Previously, a node name could be incorrectly written in the index
due to the lameness of ‘object->string’ (mentioned in release 1.1).
You can see this by copying new file prob.xml into the previous
release and running "make prob.ixin". Contrast to the prob.ixin
distributed in this release.
- new retrieve command: dump-node
This displays the raw node data for a selected node to stdout.
To get the tree, do: ‘./retrieve ... | base64 -d | gzip -d’.
- new retrieve command: repl
This runs a simple command loop that reads from stdin and writes to
stdout. The program maintains a "current node", and recognizes
some simple navigation and display commands. Type ‘quit’ to quit.
To see this in action, try "make demo-zow". Add ‘ZOW=rcs’, e.g.,
to choose rcs.ixin (defaults to alive.ixin if not specified).
- ‘meta’ format defined
Previously, it was simply the portion of the (input) SXML prior to
the first ‘node’ element. Now, it has the form:
(ATTRS XID VARS SETTINGS COPYING TITLEPAGE ELEMENT...)
This change is a move from underspecified to specified, so the
version number of the format remains at 1. See README.
