On Wed, 14 Sep 2011 Uwe Lück submitted an update to the nicetext package. Summary description: Nice meta-verbatim, dialogues for .txt->.tex/encoding conversion License type: lppl Announcement text:
Release 0.44: `niceverb.sty' v0.44 copes with design issue: on "\AddQuotes", "`...'" indeed surrounds inline TeX code with single quotation marks automatically (besides meta-verbatim) `fddial0g.sty' v0.2 all my ideas so far for dialogue programming tools carried out (handling "variables", displaying their values on a "screen", "\Spaces{15}" [e.g.] counts when expanding w/o e-TeX); not super-comfortable, but fine `fifinddo.sty' v0.43 new command useful in programming dialogues dialogues/templates adjusted `u8atablg.fdf' fifinddo rules for replacing UTF-8 chars with TeX commands (and some extended ASCII) (I use all of this for converting my Xpad/Tomboy notes into input for my great Atari editor) `mdoccheat.pdf' was missing in previous release, back again

nicetext – Minimal markup for simple text (Wikipedia style) and documentation

The bundle offers “minimal” markup syntax for various simple kinds of text. The user will typically involve little more than is printed, and will still get 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 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 files using , and to write the results to an external file; the package is used by another member of the bundle:
  • makedoc, which provides the means to produce typeset documentation direct from package files.
