I've got my air-jack hammer
I've got my saber saw
I've got all I need
Cuz I got my tools
As hsc is only one part of a puzzle, this chapter should give you
some hints where you can find other parts. However this does not claim
to point out all additional tools that can be useful inc combination
with hsc. But at least it should list all utilities mentioned
somewhere in this manual.
Some stuff that should be useful for project management
- aminet:dev/c/make-3.75-bin.lha, an Amiga-port of GNUmake.
Different to several other Unix-ports, no
is required, as it was compiled with SAS/c.
- aminet:dev/gcc/gccXXXdoc.lha, which contains
(among other documents) the manual to GNUmake in
AmigaGuide format (the exact filename depends on the version of
- GNUmake and diff (and all other GNU
utilities) can be obtained from ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/. There
are several mirror sites of this material, scan the
ReadMes there for details.
's syntax check
is quite small and clumsy, maybe you should also
have a look at one of the following sources:
- based on SGMLS, but easier to use. Available from
for those who insist on using a dtd.
- WebLint, a Perl-script that is even more cryptic to configure
than hsc. And it's Perl.. würg, kotz, reiha.. (http://www.unipress.com/cgi-bin/WWWeblint)
validation service maybe provides the most competent syntax-check,
but most likely the slowest. (http://www.webtechs.com/html-val-svc/)
To show a document in your browser from the Makefile once hsc
has written it, you can use aminet:comm/www/OpenURL.lha.
To use Unixoid filenames
within AmigaOS, there are numerous tools
available. For example, you can use
And some resources that have been quite useful during the development
, but are probably also worth a reading
you are serious about w3-authoring:
- Composing Good HTML,
a general introduction to the whole HTML problem. It's also useful to
better understand several messages of hsc. (http://www.ology.org/tilt/cgh/)
- The Alertbox: Current Issues in Web Usability
- might frustrate you, but answers several ``Why?''s. (http://www.useit.com/alertbox/)
- Richard Scarry: ``Mein allerschönstes Buch vom Backen, Bauen und
Flugzeugfliegen'' - a general introduction to life and how to cope
