DTP, the DocTools Processor =========================== Introduction ------------ The DocTools Processor is an easy to use application adding a nice interface around the tcllib package handling doctools formatted texts. It makes it easy to process a large set of manpages in one go, customizing the output, and more. Note that the 'doctools' in the name of the application refers to - a tcl-based format for writing manpages - a module in the Tcllib package of the same name - a package in the module above to handle text written in the format. Dependencies ------------ The code is setup to use the 'starkit' package (*) to allow for easy deployment as *kit/pack. This means that the dtp depends on Tcl 8.4 and C code (starkit, tclvfs, metakit). For proper operation we need the textutil and doctools modules of tcllib. Command line, help ------------------ dtp help Simple help about the help sytem dtp help cmdline <format> dtp commandline help in a supported format, written to stdout. /Internal/ The generic framework asks each application package for a fragment of .man, assembles this into one page and converts that. Tries to cache the result (no caching if starkit is not writeable).
