CCLDoc documentation system
CCLDoc is a system for creating Lisp documentation. It uses S-expressions to represent document structure, markup, cross references, and contents. It has a small number of basic operators, supports macros for syntax extensions, and supports a simple syntax for embedding expressions in strings for added convenience.
The documentation for Clozure CL is written in CCLDoc.
To use CCLDoc to format the CCL documentation, follow these steps:
- Install CCL. See http://ccl.clozure.com/download.html
- Install Quicklisp. See http://www.quicklisp.org
- Check out the CCLDoc sources into ~/quicklisp/local-projects
Now, start CCL, and do the following:
(load "home:quicklisp;setup") (ql:quickload :ccldoc) (defparameter *d* (ccldoc:load-document "ccl:doc;manual;ccl.ccldoc")) (ccldoc::output-html *d* "/tmp/ccl.html" :stylesheet "ccl.css")
You can then view the generated ccl.html file in your browser. The generated HTML expects to use a style file named ccl.css in the same directory.
There is also a not-quite-complete LaTeX converter. To use it, do
(output-latex *d* "ccl.tex") and then process the ccl.tex file with xelatex to produce a PDF file. The version of xelatex that comes with MacTeX 2014 works.
