Dominik Kubla <dominik@debian.org>
Description:
GNU Spell, a clone of Unix `spell' GNU Spell is a spell checking program which prints each misspelled word on a line of its own. It is designed as a clone of the standard Unix `spell' program, and implemented as a wrapper for Ispell. Spell accepts as its arguments a list of files to read from. Within that list, the magical file name `-' causes Spell to read from standard input. In addition, when called with no file name arguments, Spell assumes that it should process standard input.

Description:
The GNU Project's documentation formatting system Texinfo is a documentation system that can produce various types of output (including hardcopy and on-line forms) from a single source file.

The most common output formats for Texinfo documents are printed TeX output and Info files, which can be read using Emacs's Info browser or the standalone browser in the `info' package.

This package contains programs to format Texinfo using TeX and to turn Texinfo into `Info' online help files. The Texinfo manual, which tells you how to write a Texinfo document, is in a separate package.

Also, less does not have to read the entire input file before starting, so with large input files it starts up faster than text editors like vi (1). Less uses termcap (or terminfo on some systems), so it can run on a variety of terminals. There is even limited support for hardcopy terminals.

Access to these data files is facilitated by the inclusion of an sgml catalog file which defines a default SGML declaration and a default DTD for documents whose DOCTYPE is 'html', and which links system identifiers to public identifiers for other SGML DTD's and entity sets.

Description:
a major mode for SGML. PSGML is a major mode for editing SGML documents. It works with GNU Emacs 19.19 and later or with Lucid Emacs (Now called XEmacs) 19.9 and later. PSGML contains a simple SGML parser and can work with any DTD. (The most popular nowadays are the HTML DTD's. If you install sgml-data, this can turn your emacs into the one of most powerful HTML editors and will be ultimately flexible as well, since you could upgrade your editor by just installing new DTD's). Functions provided includes menus and commands for inserting tags with only the contextually valid tags, identification of structural errors, editing of attribute values in a separate window with information about types and defaults, and structure based editing.

SGML, a language for encoding the structure of a document, is an ISO standard: ISO 8879:1986 "Information processing - Text and office systems - Standard Generalized Markup Language (SGML)".

Like grep, sgrep can be used for any kind of text files. However it is most useful for text files containing some kind of structured text. A file containing structured text could be defined as a file, which obeys some syntax. Examples of structured text files are SGML, HTML, C, Tex and mail files.

It uses the gs PostScript interpreter and is based on the classic X front-end for gs, ghostview. It is more comfortable and more powerful than ghostview.

The new gs version (>= 4.0) can view PDF files. It is mostly compliant with Adobe's PDF format, so it has less problems than xpdf. There is no support for encrypted pdf files. It provides much better output than xpdf and even AcroRead (Adobe's PDF Reader) but is far slower.

Description:
A file pager program, similar to more(1) Less is a program similar to more (1), but which allows backward movement in the file as well as forward movement. Also, less does not have to read the entire input file before starting, so with large input files it starts up faster than text editors like vi (1). Less uses termcap (or terminfo on some systems), so it can run on a variety of terminals. There is even limited support for hardcopy terminals.

The GNU Project's documentation formatting system Texinfo is a documentation system that can produce various types of output (including hardcopy and on-line forms) from a single source file.

The most common output formats for Texinfo documents are printed TeX output and Info files, which can be read using Emacs's Info browser or the standalone browser in the `info' package.

This package contains programs to format Texinfo using TeX and to turn Texinfo into `Info' online help files. The Texinfo manual, which tells you how to write a Texinfo document, is in a separate package.

Description:
a more/less paging type program Most is a paging program that displays, one windowful at a time, the contents of a file on a terminal. It pauses after each windowful and prints on the window status line of the screen the file name, current line number, and the percentage of the file so far displayed.

Unlike other paging programs, most is capable of displaying an arbitrary number of windows as long as each window occupies at least two screen lines. Each window may contain the same file or a different file. In addition, each window has its own mode.

In addition to displaying ordinary text files, most can also display binary files as well as files with arbitrary ascii characters.
