Unix Programming - The Zoo of Unix Documentation Formats - DocBook
DocBook is an SGML and XML document type definition designed for
large, complex technical documents. It is alone among the markup
formats used in the Unix community in being purely structural. The
tool discussed in Chapter14 supports rendering to HTML, XHTML,
PostScript, PDF, Windows
Help markup, and several less important formats.
Several major open-source projects (including the Linux
Documentation Project, FreeBSD,
Apache, Samba, GNOME,
and KDE) already use DocBook as a master format. This book was
written in XML-DocBook.
DocBook is a large topic. We'll return to it after summing up
the problems with the current state of Unix documentation.
