What is this document?

This document is currently mainly a placeholder, to be filled with commonly asked questions about the docidx markup language and companions, and their answers.

Please report any questions (and, if possible, answers) we should consider for this document as explained in the section Bugs, Ideas, Feedback below.


Where do I find docidx examples?

We have no direct examples of documents written using docidx markup. However the doctools processor dtplite does generate a table of contents when processing a set of documents written in doctools markup. The intermediate file for it uses docidx markup and is not deleted when generation completes. Such files can therefore serve as examples.

dtplite is distributed as part of Tcllib, so to get it you need one of

  1. A snapshot of Tcllib. How to retrieve such a snapshot and the tools required for this are described at Development Snapshots

  2. A Tcllib release archive. They are available at the home page.
