I thought it was just me who had missed the
information in the sgml newsgroup, but I got
several requests, so here it is, for everybody:
To process the examples and documentation, you
will also need the osf-dtd, it lies in the
same directory. I had problems exporting to LaTeX
and printed out the manualpages instead.
The conversion process for the documentation is
driven by a makefile, it worked only with gmake
on my machine.
I haven't done much more than looking at the doc's
for `instant', the conversion program, and
`transpecs', the specification format for the
conversion. The transpecs files coming with the
package also give an impression of what can be done
I have been pointed to perl and awk as possible
alternatives; what I appreciate with the `instant'
program is the SGML awareness that might make the
processing of massive tagging more natural.
Perhaps, `instant's role is that of an intermediate
filter that reduces the massive information in sgmls
output to what you really care about, and what
you then want to process with awk, perl, etc....
