Advanced search and replace program

'outl' is a glorified search and replace engine. It can be used to generate markup such as HTML, XML, or whatever from a text file. Users specify which elements to look for using perl regex as well as how to deal with those elements when replacing them. 'oult'is designed to process outlines (e.g., lecture notes, etc.) and generate nice HTML, but it could be used in other contexts as well by defining a new set of rules for the substitution process. It can deal with relatively complex structures involving multiple lines, nested lists, etc. It doesn't deal with table construction, etc. but doesn't mind if the text file being processed already contains xml-like elements.
