CHARTER

Charter: A forum for the discussion of issues related
   to literate programming.

(1) To share ideas, questions, experiences, and knowledge about the
    reading and writing of literate programs.

(2) To discuss the merits of the currently existing literate
    programming tools.

(3) To discuss the design of new literate programming tools.

If a newsgroup is created, it will be mirrored to the existing mailing list

by the host sponsoring the mailing list.

Background: What is Literate Programming?

Literate programming is a programming technique invented by Donald. E. Knuth.
A literate programming system can be characterized by the following properties:

 - The compilable program and the publishable documentation should be
   generated *automatically* from a *single* document.

 - The program can be presented in the order that is best for human
   understanding, regardless of any requirements of the programming
   language.

 - The program should be automatically indexed and cross-referenced.

Knuth's original system, called WEB, generated Pascal code and a TeX
documentation. Most tools relating to the TeX system have been written
using WEB, and the TeX and Metafont programs have been published in book
form.

Today, there are Literate Programming systems for a wide range of
programming languages and documentation systems. Specialized Literate
Programming tools have been written for Ada, Awk, C, C++, fortran,
Modula-2, Modula-3, Pascal and Scheme, and generic tools exist that
can generate almost any programming language (including Perl and sh).

Documentation systems supported include TeX, Troff, and Word for
Windows.
