All work and no play makes Joe a dull boy.


Gentext is a general purpose text processor/generator. It can be used for some of the same tasks as m4 or the C preprocessor. Gentext is well suited to generate HTML websites, documentation, and XML documents, from parameterized input source.

Unlike other text processors, gentext generates output by parsing and executing a functional input source language. The functional nature makes many tasks much simpler to accomplish using gentext than traditional text processors.

Sample gentext source files are included in the download packages, including sample source for HTML website generation similar to this website.
