AFT (Almost Free Text) is a document preparation system. It is mostly free form, meaning that there is little intrusive markup; AFT source documents look a lot like plain old ASCII text. It has a few rules for structuring your document, more to do with formatting your text than embedding lots of commands, and it produces all types of output (HTML, XHTML, LaTeX, roll-your-own XML, etc.). All that needs to be done is to edit a rule file. You can even customize your own rule files for specialized output.
ASCIIweb is a text-to-HTML formatting system that uses the 'pre' tag to create ASCII art Web pages, either on the fly or for static retrieval. It has a simple and flexible module system that also allows you to integrate shell scripts and practically any text output into your Web pages. It will also parse and include live Apache-style directory listings into your pages, giving you a creative and sharp looking way to make files available to your users. It looks just as good in Lynx as it does in Firefox.
Annotate provides an annotation facility for DocBook documents. It enables visitors to an online version of a DocBook document to add comments to any paragraph or chapter of the document. It extends the DocBook XSL stylesheets, leading to modified HTML output which contains anchors at those places where annotations can be made. Comments and notes are stored in a DBMS. A CGI program then merges the HTML document and the comments to produce the output for the visitor.
BabelKit is an interface to a universal multilingual database code table. It takes all of the programming work out of maintaining multiple database code definition sets in multiple languages. The code administration and translation page lets developers define new virtual code tables, new languages, enter all codes and their descriptions, and then translate them into all languages of interest. Perl and PHP classes retrieve the code descriptions and automatically generate HTML code selection elements in the user's language. This makes internationalization and localization of Web sites and database interfaces much easier.
Bare XML is a "bare" XML parser with all primary parsing done via a simple state engine with about 20 or so different states. A tree structure is created during parsing, with all node names and values linked via pointers directly into the original text buffer. As such, Bare XML is extremely fast and simple. Currently, the parser is available in a perl module with Perl glue to turn the created tree into a Perl hash tree. The module name is XML::Bare.
Business::Associates is a library to handle the XML interface for the Amazon.com Associates program. It replaces the Amazon Recommends links to provide a powerful and simple-to-use interface that allows you to embed complex, highly targeted ads on your Web site (or other documents). It supports many new features that are not available with the standard interfaces (e.g., multi-mode searches--the ability to search across multiple product categories).
Chit is a template based generator for textual data, such as program code, configuration data, or anything else you can imagine. It gathers its input from data in a relational database. This means that the output text is generated from a template according to a given SQL statement. This tool's original purpose was to generate configuration files for Nagios from a local PostgreSQL database.
The DigiMemo A501 can be used for the digitalisation of normal writings. Everything you write with standard leads on standard paper will be digitally collected, stored, and later transfered to your computer. As the transfer format, an internal file format called INK file is used. This format can be converted by this tool to Postscript or PDF files. This way, you can use your DigiMemo A501 on Linux, BSD, Unix, or Mac OS X.
