Description: Yet oneOther Document Language.
Yodl is a package that implements a pre-document language and tools to
process it. The idea of Yodl is that you write up a document in a
pre-language, then use the tools (eg. yodl2html) to convert it to some
final document language. Current converters are for HTML, ms, man, LaTeX
SGML and texinfo, plus a poor-man's text converter. Main document types are
"article", "report", "book" and "manpage". The Yodl document language is
designed to be easy to use and extensible.
