This software distribution is a bunch of tools to deal with structured text (Stx). Stx is a kind of plain text format with semantic markup. Stx is documented in:
Of some interest may be also Accreditions of ideas behind structured text.
There are a homepage (currently in the author's wiki), and a distribution page at http://sange.fi/~atehwa/ for this project. You can contact the author at mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
The following tools are included:
Usage:messages and manual pages from the same source.
A traditional make && make install will do. You can override the make variable PREFIX to install somewhere else than /usr. Other variables you might want to override include EMACSDIR and MANDIR. Take a look at the ./Makefile.
The installation process of stx2any normally uses w3m to produce
usage messages from Stx. If you don't want to install w3m, you
can give make the option BUILD_USAGE_WITH=plain to avoid using
w3m. The only consequence is that
usage messages (the output of
stx2any --help, for instance) will look cruder.
If you have a debian box, you can build a debian package directly by saying fakeroot debian/rules binary and installing the resulting package with dpkg -i.
