[REBOL] Re: Makedoc

From: swhite::ci::bloomington::mn::us at: 27-Jul-2006 8:26

Well, I found the problem. Near the end of the script is the line that creates the output file name out of the input file name: append clear find/last file #"." ".html" My input file name did not have a dot anywhere in it, so when the script tried to find a dot as an place marker for the .html extension, it could not. With my background (Unisys and unix), I did not realize that a file name "extension" was a de-facto requirement, so I don't always use one. I guess I will from now on. Thank you.

I use it all the time to produce miles and miles of documentation, and I believe it is the official way.

It's hard to tell when you haven't reproduced the error, but the official version is downloadable from this place: script=makedoc2.r The easiest way is to start it. It will then prompt for an input file. When you give it a make doc text file, it should produce an HTML file from that input. A rather large example of a makedoc 2 document can be found here: -- Regards, Henrik Mikael Kristensen
