Book Cover

This book was created from standard ascii text files. A collection of software utility programs, written in Perl scripts and Microsoft Word macros, were developed. Using these programs, the text files could be transformed into either an online book (in HTML) or a Microsoft Word document.

The programs supported all the special features of the book, including cross-references, end notes, and the concept index. To support these features, the software generated URL hyperlinks for the online version and page number cross reference fields for the Microsoft Word version.

I believe that these features add a great deal of richness to a book, especially a technical book or any book as complex as this one is.
