The TeX Catalogue Online


Minimal markup for simple text (Wikipedia style) and documentation.

Nicetext bundle offers “minimal” markup syntax for various simple kinds of text. The code you type should involve little more than is printed, and you still get LaTeX quality.

The bundle provides four packages:
wiki addresses general texts, marked up in the simple style used on Wikipedia;
niceverb is yet another means of documenting LaTeX packages: it offers syntax-aware typesetting of meta-variables (macro arguments) and for referring to commands (and their syntax) in footnotes, section titles etc.;
fifinddo aims to parse plain text or (La)TeX files using TeX, and to write the results to an external file. This generalises the philosophy behind docstrip: the package aims at practical application, and is used by
makedoc, which provides the means to typeset package files.
