Update of /cvsroot/pkgsrc/textproc/hevea
In directory netbsd.hut.fi:/tmp/cvs-serv26188
Initial import of hevea.
HEVEA is a LaTeX to HTML translator. The input language is a fairly
complete subset of LaTeX2e (old LaTeX style is also accepted) and the
output language is HTML that is (hopefully) correct with respect to
version 4.0 (transitional)
Exotic symbols are translated into symbols pertaining to the
symbol font of the HTML browser, using the FACE attribute of the FONT
tag. This allows the translation to HTML of quite a lot of the symbols
used in LaTeX.
HEVEA understands LaTeX macro definitions. Simple user style
files are understood with little or no modifications.
Furthermore, HEVEA customization is done by writing LaTeX code.
HEVEA is written in Objective Caml, as many lexers. It is quite fast
and flexible. Using HEVEA it is possible to translate large documents
such as manuals, books, etc. very quickly. All documents are
translated as one single HTML file. Then, the output file can be cut
into smaller files, using the companion program HACHA.
