asc2frm
=======

What is asc2frm?
----------------

"asc2frm" is a text formatting package which uses a simple programming
language to define the layout of a document.

Duplicate blanks and duplicate blank lines are ignored. A special command is
used to define an indentation of a section of text.


Features
--------

o  sections
o  (numbered) titles and subtitles
o  numbered and bullet lists
o  bold, italic, underlined, and reverse text
o  4 foreground and background colours
o  indentations
o  tables

Lists can be nested to a maximum of 1,024 levels. Up to 1,024 sections can be
definded. A table may consist of up to 1,024 columns.


Output formats
--------------

The output files may be in ASCII, ANSI (for printing to PRT: or displaying
with MORE), or AmigaGuide format. By default, an index is created for Amiga-
Guide documents.


Purpose
-------

"asc2frm" is of use if you want to have the same information in several
document formats.

Any change has only to be made once. After that, you can compile the source
file to any output format you want.

Without "asc2frm", you had to change each file by yourself. Probably, one
would forget to change something in that case, or insert a lot of errors,
etc.
