Lout

Lout is a batch text formatting system and an embedded
language by Jeffrey H. Kingston . The
language is procedural, with {Scribe}-like {syntax}.

Lout features equation formatting, tables, diagrams, rotation
and scaling, sorted indexes, bibliographic databases, running
headers and odd-even pages and automatic cross-referencing.
Lout is easily extended with definitions which are very much
easier to write than {troff} of {TeX} {macro}s because Lout is
a {high-level language}, the outcome of an eight-year research
project that went back to the beginning.

Version 2.05 includes a translator from Lout to {PostScript}
and documentation. and runs under {Unix} and on the {Amiga}.
