Or Norman Ramsey's NoWeb, which also has a large following and is language

# apt-get install nowebm           # Norman Ramsey's noweb
# apt-get install cweb cweb-latex  # Levy/Knuth's CWEB (the original)
# apt-get install cwebx            # Marc Van Leeuwen's CWEBx
# apt-get install fweb             # (for C/C++/Fortran/Ratfor)

There are a few other variants about too that haven't, afaik, been
packaged. There are also variants for Windows, too, but I have no idea
about them. The litprog FAQ goes into more detail.

The noweb home page,


is probably a good starting point.

aj, who likes litprog in theory, but still hasn't gotten much practice 
    at it.
