knuth-hint – HINT collection of typeset C/WEB sources in Live

Here you find a large collection of HINT documents for many C/WEB programs in Live, both in their original form as written by their respective authors, and in the changed form as they are actually used in the Live system. Care has been taken to keep the section numbering intact, so that you can study the sources and their changes in parallel. Also included is the collection of ‘errata’ for Donald Knuth's “Computers & Typesetting” series.

Although not all the texts here are written or maintained by Donald Knuth, it is more convenient for everything to be collected in one place for reading and searching. They all stem from the system that Knuth created. The central entry point is the ‘index’ file, with links to the individual documents, either in HTML or in PDF format.

If you believe to have found anything that remains technically, historically, typographically, or politically incorrect in any of these files, please feel free to report bugs in and friends.

The “License” of the knuth-hint package is “Public Domain” and it covers only the contents of this package, not the various (and varying) “free software” licenses of the presented software codes.

This is version “1.0” of the knuth-hint package — 2022-04-06, Andreas Scherer.

knuth-hint – HINT collection of typeset C/WEB sources in Live

The knuth-hint package contains the large collection of HINT documents for many of the CWEB amd WEB sources of programs in the Live distribution (and, for technical reasons, PDF documents for CTWILL and ). Each program is presented in its original form as written by the respective authors, and in the “changed” form as used in Live. Care has been taken to keep the section numbering intact, so that you can study the codes and the changes in parallel. Also included are the “errata” for Donald Knuth's “Computers & Typesetting”.

HINT is the dynamic document format created by Martin Ruckert's Hi engine that was added to Live 2022. The HINT files can be viewed on Linux, Windows, and Android with the hintview application. The knuth-hint package is a showcase of Hi's capabilities.
