CWEAVE and CTANGLE

CWEAVE and CTANGLE

The idea behind CWEB is that a single file (*.w) contains both the source code and associated documentation. CTANGLE extracts the source code for the compiler. CWEAVE prepares the documentation for pretty printing.

CWEB Sections

CWEB Sections

CWEB supports sections which is a means of chopping up a method implementation into chunks. CWEB sections can be defined (presented) in any order.

CWEB Pretty Printing

CWEB Sections

CWEB listings are generated using the TeX typography system. The documentation can include formulas, tables, and pictures. The CWEAVE tool automatically creates an index and table of contents.
