We have developed the tool 'JAM' (Just Another Metaformat). A new version
(Version 2.0) has been put into beta status (stage 3) as of today.
The location bioftp.unibas.ch has this version in the directory
programs/bioftp-sw/jam2.0 - directories contain source code and description.
What does JAM ?
The program 'jam' (ASCII interface) or 'jamgui' (Graphical User Interface,
made possible by using J.Kahn's VIBRANT toolkit) takes a sufficiently
formatted text in 'JAM' format and produces wither HTML, LaTEX, or RTF
format. Jam has been used to create a preliminary version of the
'biocomputing survival guide', which will be released later this year in
its final version (Preview and sources are available from the URL
The purpose of this release of beta stage software is to collect productive
feedback on the enhancements and possible requirements for a final release.
Comments are welcome.
