The latest installment of my Thinking XML column
posted today: XML
meets semantics - Will XML live up to its promise?.
Today I completed editing version 0.4 of the Versa
spec. According to the revision notes:
Add string functions. Add filter
find-regex function. Add quote escaping in strings. Remove
all() form. More clean-up.
I also updated the versa-by-example
tutorial, adding lessons 9 and 27, making corrections and
style changes to other lessons. Finally, I implemented an
optimization in 4Suite's Versa implemention for metadata
search engine use cases.
Added the 4Suite project page
dead-end "4SUite" one through a fat-finger error)
Took a look at the MoinMoin Wiki clone,
which Jürgen Hermann pointed out after reading yesterdays's
mention of a Wiki parser. I need to be smacked. Jürgen is
a long time user of 4Suite, and has mentioned MoinMoin
before. The MoinMoin
parser code looks especially useful. I hope to mod it
to emit docbook or XHTML as well. I think I might also set
up a 4Suite MoinMoin.
I'm still torn on whether to update my Red Hat on my
laptop, or to go to Debian.
Watched Germany basically beat Cameroon through sheer
composure. That ref was the most officious bastard since
Savonarola. Senegal/Uruguay was priceless entertainment.
No poem memorized today: slacker that I am.
