This may or may not be of interest to anybody who creates professional typeset-looking manuscripts. I use vi as I have for 30 years simply because my fingers know it. I can keep fingers on keyboard rather than switch back and forth to mouse. Last night I used a very short php/html file that used HTML and converted it [[[EVENTUALLY]]] to the open desktop format. Just now I wrote a one sentence file, a2oofile, using vi/nvi:
"Good morning, people. It is so *great* to be back home." Then using File -> Export, saved it as a2oofile.odt. *) atom a2oofile [ creates a2oofile.html ] The a2oofile.html file is: <!doctype html public '-//IETF//DTD HTML//EN'> <!-autotranslation from ASCII or ISO-8859.1 by Gary Kline, kl...@thought.org---> <! @(#) a2oofile.html translated from a2oofile !> <HTML> <HEAD> <TITLE> <!your title here --> </TITLE> <! your header lines here --> </HEAD> <META NAME="Keywords" CONTENT="whatever"> <META NAME="revisit-after" CONTENT="7 days"> <META NAME="author" content="Gary Kline"> <META NAME="copyright" content="\xa9 Thought Unlimited"> <BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" LINK="#00FFFF" VLINK="#006633"><FONT SIZE="4"> <P> “Good morning, people. It is so <EM>great</EM> to be back home.” </FONT> </BODY> </HTML> *) Then switer a2oofile.html *) File -> Export [and select to save as the ODT] and you have a2oofile.odt I began writing my ascii to markup suite in 1994; it was designed to do ONE thing: to *word* into <EM>word</EM>. I've added only the left and right quotes. atom does nothing else. i have tweaked it for 15 years; never gave to it ports because I hate writing the docs. Anybody interested in handing the port, please let me know. gary -- Gary Kline kl...@thought.org http://www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org The 4.91a release of Jottings: http://jottings.thought.org/index.php _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
