Lout is a batch text formatting system and an embedded
language by Jeffrey H. Kingston <email@example.com>. The
language is procedural, with Scribe-like syntax.
Lout features equation formatting, tables, diagrams, rotation
and scaling, sorted indexes, bibliographic databases, running
headers and odd-even pages and automatic cross-referencing.
Lout is easily extended with definitions which are very much
easier to write than troff of TeX macros because Lout is
a high-level language, the outcome of an eight-year research
project that went back to the beginning.
Version 2.05 includes a translator from Lout to PostScript
and documentation. and runs under Unix and on the Amiga.
