The a2h.pl program is now available for your viewing pleasure from my web


I should have it installed this weekend (along with the appropriate
gateway), which will allow Doug to start uploading Augment documents to
the web. Although the code has limited utility, there are some
interesting things there:

- some documentation of Augment files

- description of things that need to be done that could easily become part
of the first rev of the OHS, including a link database and an XML->HTML

Additionally, there's plenty of room to improve the script (written in
Perl), and it should be fairly easy to modify. Specifically, the parsing
could be a little more clever, and it should be really easy to write a
function that generates XML once we create the appropriate DTD. I'd
encourage people on the list to read the documentation and the code, to
make comments and ask questions on the list, and to modify the code to
accomplish some of the things on the To Do list.
