I have implemented the following for dwww in the way of document lists. The implementation does not currently follow the new web standard, because I don't have a httpd that would follow it. I won't make any release until I can convert dwww to the new web standard. Does any httpd maintainer have estimates on when they can get a conforming server out? Suggestions for additional sections would be welcome. Note that new sections can be added and they will sort of work: it's just the title that will be awkward ("Unknown section textprocessing", for example). ---- 8< ---- Automatic fancy index of documents -------------------------------------- dwww can build a fancy document index. The index is built from files installed as </usr/doc/*/.dwww-index>. (Support for locale-dependent and locally installed indexes will follow shortly.) The index file should contain one or more entries in the following format: #section SECTION <dt><a href="RELATIVEHREF">TITLE</a> <dd>DESCRIPTION The "#section" must be at the beginning of the line, and be in lower case. "SECTION" is one word giving the section in the index for the document; allowed values are admin system administration info programming programming info general other info These names are symbolic; the user will see a more descriptive name. More sections will be added later. If unsure about which section to put a document in, or if you want a new section, discuss on email@example.com. "RELATIVEHREF" is a link to the first file in the document, relative to /usr/doc. For example, if the document is in /usr/doc/hello/hello.html, RELATIVEHREF would be "hello/hello.html". "TITLE" should be the title of the document. If the title is very long, it should be shortened. "DESCRIPTION" is a few words describing the document. It is not necessary to name the authors. The description should be short and to the point, so that the index won't grow too big. Remember: a full Debian installation has hundreds of packages. dwww also builds a shorter index, which only has the titles. If a directory below /usr/doc does not have a .dwww-index file (or even if it does), then documentation in it can be accessed using the "File listings" link from the dwww front page. -- I have an aggressive junkmail filter (http://www.iki.fi/liw/mail-to-lasu.html) You don't have to worry about it, since I've sent you mail.
