Hey all,

I have written a new tool to maintain both an ASCII and an HTML version of
my faq. I tried many other tools but they just didn't fit my needs...


- written in (Unix) PERL
- free
- works pretty good and not just for FAQ lists
- not a very complicated program (only one parameter: -h)


- you'll have to reformat your faq source file to my format
- the source can definately be improved (but hey, it works!)

The program relies on 1 or more source files. They will be parsed and
output will be written to one or more output files, in ASCII or HTML

You can download it from:


To see the source for my FAQ file, go to:


And to see the FAQ after running it through jsp.pl:


I'd love to hear your comments!
