The software selection encompasses everything required to make computers productive for either home or medical use. This distribution includes a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP) stack that is needed for developing or hosting PHP-based Web sites and all other major development tools. The aim of this distribution is to provide complete resources for medical doctors, clinics, and medical students as well as IT admins running labs at educational institutes.
The DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite (DAPS) provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. It lets you create HTML (including Webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. It automatically takes care of validating and filtering (profiling) your sources and automatically converts images into a format best suited for the output format. You can easily create profiled source tarballs for translation or review. DAPS supports authors by providing linkchecker, validator, spellchecker, and editor macros. It is well suited to manage large documentation projects with multiple authors using the DAPS docmanager.
