AppLaunch is a Mac OS X version of the common “Run” or “Launch” dialogs provided by other operating systems and window managers such as Windows or KDE. It consists of an input box where the user enters a command line that will be passed to the applications workspace. A command in the AppLaunch meaning is not only a “pure” shell command; as of version 2 it may also be a file, an application, or an URL.
LayManSys is an RDF-based PHP framework for generating a consistent layout for Web documents. It includes a library that can be used online as well as on the command line. It generates the headers and footers for HTML documents, manages (CSS) style definitions, shortcut icons (favicons), static HTML, and dynamic PHP content, and much more. The necessary meta information is either stored in RDF files or in special layout configuration files.
The docbooktoc.xsl is an XSLT file for generating an XHTML table of contents from DocBook XML documents. It is used by the LayManSys project for the documentation. docbooktoc generates an XHTML document containing the books' meta information (in DocBook XML, this is the subnode bookinfo) and then lists all of the books' chapters and sections in an ordered list. The meta information is both used for generating the head as well as the document header (in the XHTML body), and the output is the same as what the DocBook XSLT driver for XHTML generates.
The xsd2db package is used for converting XML Schema Definition files into DocBook XML code. The transformer can also be used to generate DocBook XML from plain XML files. It marks up tag names, attribute names, attribute values, and annotation, if parsing XSD code. The resulting DocBook XML code may be styled so that you have syntax highlighted XML code.
The PHP program inidoc is contributed with LayManSys, and is used internally for documenting configuration files in a so-called INI format. This file format is typically used for config files under MS Windows or by PHP Web applications. inidoc uses special comments in the INI files and generates DocBook XML output. The program's output format is DocBook XML, where each INI file is documented within a section. Normal text is put into para tags, and the key-value pairs are described using a glosslist.
The docbookm package is contributed with LayManSys and contains very simple XSLT drivers for generating XHTML chunks from DocBook XML. This package does not require an installation; you only have to unzip the package's contents into a directory of your choice and start using it. There is no special documentation available. Use the file abstract.xsl for transforming an abstract and section.xsl for transforming sections. All other .xsl files are only includes needed by those two.
