FunnelWeb Variants

*Tony Coates has created a FunnelWeb variant called FunnelWeb V3.05AC (a variant of FunnelWeb V3.0 - an earlier version) that provides some extra useful features. As this is an unofficial version, it's features are not guaranteed to appear in future official versions of FunnelWeb.


comp.programming.literate - This is the newsgroup for Literate Programming. It carried quite a bit of traffic in the early 1990s, but (as at 1999) traffic appears to be very low.

comp.doc A newsgroup about documentation. Again, a very low traffic group.

Literate Programming Links

The Literate Programming FAQ - I think this was the FAQ that was used in comp.programming.literate. This FAQ contains what appears to be a comprehensive list of literate programming tools.

A Bibliography of Literate Programming - A searchable bibliography. - Anyone who's bothered to register a domain called this deserves a link!

The Literate Programming WebRing - A collection of literate programming webs organized into a ring.

The Yahoo Literate Programming Page.

XML and Literate Programming

Other Literate Programming Tools

NoWeb Home Page - A minimalist literate programming tool.

The LEO Outlining Literate Programming Tool For Macintosh - Sounds interesting (but I haven't looked at it yet).

There are lots of other tools out there too.

Literate Programming People

Donald Knuth - The inventor of literate programming.

Ross Williams - The creator of FunnelWeb.

Tony Coates - Creator of a variant of FunnelWeb (see above).

The page contains a comprehensive-looking list of people involved with literate programming.
