This is a version of Preston Briggs's NUWEB system, a simple literate
programming language and tool.
Here is what Preston says:
NUWEB works with any programming language and LaTeX. I wanted
to use LaTeX because it supports a multi-level sectioning scheme
and has facilities for drawing figures. I wanted to be able to
work with arbitrary programming languages because my friends and
I write programs in many languages (and sometimes combinations
of several languages), e.g., C, Fortran, C++, yacc, lex, Scheme,
assembly, Postscript, and so forth.
This is revision 0.90, for the Commodore Amiga.
This distribution includes the Ami_NuWeb executable, all source files
(web and C), documentation and the (short) .dvi output of the user manual.
Ami_NuWeb The executable for any Amiga hardware, supports coprocessor
Makefile The original UNIX Makefile, unmodified for historic reasons
SMakefile The Makefile for SAS/C++ 6.55

ami_nuweb0.90.readme This file
literate.bib A BibTeX bibliography of literate programming references
nuweb.w The NUWEB source for NUWEB
nuweb.ch A change file for better ANSI compliance and Amiga support

This port was done and completely tested with SAS/C++ 6.55 on an Amiga 2000
by Andreas Scherer, Roland-Straße 16, 52070 Aachen, Germany.
I started from Tomas Willis' work, switched to NUWEB 0.87b, and added some
parts on my own. The current version 0.90 is based on the distribution
maintained by Marc Mengel. Thanks to Preston Briggs for NUWEB and to
Tomas Willis for the (S)Makefile and the `temp_file+=2' hack (this has
been superseded due to compatibility problems with DEC Ultrix 4.4 CC).
Concerning the use of NUWEB with other human languages than English, I
implemented full localization of all strings used for terminal output as
well as LaTeX output for the Amiga version of NUWEB only. Should someone
create translations for other languages as well, I would appreciate to
receive a copy for inclusion in future distributions.
