Spell checking a Lout document?
2012-04-17 09:30:39 GMT
I have just finished writing my great 15,000 page magnum opus, full of genius math, tables, and so on, entirely in Lout. Hundreds of *.lt files <at> Included in a main Lout file. Now, before I vanity publish it and try to sell a copy to Mom, I wonder if I've made any silly little typos. What are practical ways to spell-check these .lt files? Obviously an ordinary everyday spell checker will barf on all the <at> Something Lout keywords and maybe trip over the punctuation marks, although most of this source text is just regular text which could go through a spell checker fine. Perhaps there's a filter that can extract all the straight text, preening out simple markups such as <at> I, and bypassing all the structural stuff and non-text like sections, math, tables etc., making a simple text file one can check? OTOH, maybe there's a way to spell check the final .ps or .pdf file? (Besides paying some unfortunate Human to proofread it.) I'm on Linux so naturally I prefer solutions that would work on that platform, or multiplatform. -- -- Daren Scot Wilson Escondido California darenw <at> darenscotwilson.com http://www.darenscotwilson.com http://www.jeffcottwilson.com http://toysihad.wordpress.com(Continue reading)
