Skribe: a functional authoring language

  • ERICK GALLESIO (a1) and MANUEL SERRANO (a2)
Abstract

This paper presents SKRIBE, a functional programming language for authoring documents, especially technical documents such as web pages, technical reports, and API documentation. Executing Skribe programs can produce documents in various formats, such as PostScript, PDF, HTML, Texinfo, or Unix man pages. That is, the very same Skribe program can be used to produce documents in different formats. Skribe is a full featured programming language whose syntax makes it look like a markup language à la HTML.

For the sake of the example, here is the whole SKRIBE source code for the paragraph above:
