word-processing (48)

AFT (Almost Free Text) is a document preparation system. It is mostly free form, meaning that there is little intrusive markup; AFT source documents look a lot like plain old ASCII text. It has a few rules for structuring your document, more to do with formatting your text than embedding lots of commands, and it produces all types of output (HTML, XHTML, LaTeX, roll-your-own XML, etc.). All that needs to be done is to edit a rule file. You can even customize your own rule files for specialized output

Aspell Heckert gnu.small.png
GNU Aspell is a spell checker that can be used either as a library or as an independent spell checker. It does a much better job of coming up with possible suggestions than other English language spell checkers. Other technical enhancements over Ispell include shared memory for dictionaries and intelligent handling of personal dictionaries when more than one Aspell process is open.
This package contains the required files to add support for the Gujarati (gu) language to the GNU Aspell spell checker.

'Compare' is similar to cmp (in the 'diffutils' package) but faster and with better readable output. It examines one file and standard in (or two files on a byte by byte basis) and prints the file position of the first difference it finds, first in decimal and then in hexadecimal, followed by the differing byte content in hexadecimal and a quoted character.
Diction Heckert gnu.small.png
This program includes both 'diction' and 'style'. 'Diction' identifies wordy and commonly misused phrases; 'style' analyzes surface characteristics of a document, including sentence length and other readability measures. While these programs cannot help you structure a document well, they can help to avoid poor wording and compare the readability of your document with others. Both commands support English and German documents.
Diffstat reads the output of the diff command and displays a histogram of the insertions, deletions, and modifications in each file. Diffstat is commonly used to provide a summary of the changes in large, complex patch files.
Diffutils Heckert gnu.small.png
A group of utilities that displays difference between and among text files. 'diff' outputs the difference between two files in any of several formats. If the files are identical, it normally produces no ouput; if they are binary (non-text) it normally reports only that they are different. 'cmp' shows the offsets and files numbers where two files differ; it can also show, side by side, all the characters that differ between the two files. 'sdiff' merges two files interactively. 'diff3' shows differences among three files. If two people have made independent changes to a common original, diff3 reports that difference between the original and the two changed versions, and can produce a merged file that contains both persons' changes along with warnings about conflicts.
