NAME

caspar-typesetting - Makefile snippets for common typesetting tasks

SYNOPSIS

In a Makefile, write
include caspar/mk/docbook.mk
or
include caspar/mk/pod.mk
.

DESCRIPTION

The caspar docbook.mk and pod.mk files are Makefile snippets for common typesetting tasks, like typesetting LaTeX (see [3]), DocBook XML, DocBook SGML (see [2]) and POD (see [1]) documents. You just have to type make, instead of stuff like jade -t tex -d caspar/print.dsl /usr/share/sgml/declaration/xml.dcl foobar.dbx.

USAGE

In a directory where you maintain .dbx (Docbook XML) or .tex (LaTeX) files, do
$ echo include caspar/mk/docbook.mk > Makefile $ vi karenina.dbx $ make karenina.view $ make karenina.print $ vi svejk.tex $ make svejk.view $ make svejk.print $ make $ make clean
Other targets: filename.ps, filename.pdf, filename.2ps, filename.html, filename.printbig, filename.dvi.

Variables you might like to set in your Makefile: XMLDCL (default is /usr/share/sgml/declaration/xml.dcl; if you're not on a Debian GNU/Linux system, you'll likely have to adjust this), HTML_DSL, PRINT_DSL.

In a directory where you maintain .pod files, do

$ echo include caspar/mk/pod.mk > Makefile $ vi lire.pod $ perldoc ./lire.pod $ make lire.pdf $ make $ less lire.overstrike-txt $ make clean
Other targets: filename.ps, filename.html, filename.txt, ... (Similar to the ones supplied by docbook.mk).

EXAMPLES

Some examples: Overriding the caspar-supplied DSSSL files: Create your own print.dls and html.dsl, in the same directory as your Docbook XML files. Your Makefile should read:

PRINT_DSL = print.dsl HTML_DSL = html.dsl include caspar/mk/docbook.mk
Overriding the standard html-to-text convertor:
$ W3M=lynx make svejk.txt
.

FILES

caspar/mk/docbook.mk, caspar/mk/pod.mk

ENVIRONMENT

For docbook.mk: files: XMLDCL, HTML_DSL, PRINT_DSL; utilities: JADE, PDFJADETEX, PDFLATEX, JADETEX, LATEX, W3M, DVIPS, PSNUP, LPR, GV; settings: JADE_MAXERRORS. These variables can get adjusted in Makefile, as well as in the shell environment.

pod.mk Uses no environment variables.
