The principle goal of open information interchange is to allow data generated by one application to be displayed, referenced and/or copied to another application. Unlike dynamic data exchange, however, open information interchange is not postulated on a need for access to the application that originally generated the data. Instead the data itself contains, or is associated with, all of the informa... View full abstract»

• ### Using SGML to produce reusable technical documentation

Publication Year: 1994, Page(s):6/1 - 6/3
| | PDF (152 KB)

The approach to the production of technical documentation described, arose from a need to supply documentation for a large library of mathematical software. The library has evolved over a period of twenty years and for most of that period the documentation has consisted of printed volumes describing the software routines and the mathematical algorithms on which they are based. In recent years ther... View full abstract»

The paper provides an introduction to the concepts of SGML. Text processing systems typically require additional information to be interspersed among the natural text of the document being processed. This additional information, called markup', serves two purposes: separating the logical elements of the document, and specifying the processing instructions to be performed on those elements. The th... View full abstract»

There are many good reasons for adopting SGML as the method of marking up source reference information when the data is primarily of textual form. Once such a decision has been reached, then it is usually necessary to consider two data conversion issues: how to get existing documents (which may exist in several different formats) into a target SGML form (up-translation); how to produce `documents'...
