PlainDoc is a document production system based on plain text files. It keeps most of the document in human readable form; the PlainDoc source itself serves as the plain text version of the document. It handles EPS, gnuplot, dia diagrams, tables, and verbatim text, uses LaTeX for PDF production, and can produce monolithic or paginated HTML and DocBook natively. Includes are supported. The file format is CVS friendly and easily diffable. It is suitable for software manuals and documentation, technical publishing, scientific papers, books, legal documents, and presentation slides.
SWEC is a program that automates testing of dynamic Web sites. It parses each HTML file it finds for links, and if those links are within the site specified, it will check that page as well. In addition to parsing and locating links, it will also parse the pages looking for known errors and report those. It will report if a page cannot be read (by either returning a 404, 500, or similar).
XHTML indent takes an XHTML file via standard input and outputs an indented version of the XML. It also adds comments to the end of closing tags so that you can quickly pick up on the opening tag without having to jump to the appropriate line. This does not convert bad code like HTML tidy does. It works with any XML formatted file, but has features designed for XHTML developers. This program works well as both a standalone tool or an external filter for a text editor.
VoiceXML::Client is a library that provides Perl programs with the ability to act as a user agent that fetches Voice Extensible Markup Language (VoiceXML) documents, parses them, and then executes the instructions therein by playing prompts and collecting user DTMF input/voice recordings through a handle to some type of telephone or other device interface. VoiceXML::Client's focus is on the client side. The XML documents are generated by a distinct process of your choice, unrelated to the library.
