What is it?
AsciiDoc is an uncomplicated text document format for
writing articles, short documents, books and UNIX man pages.
AsciiDoc files can be translated to HTML, XHTML and DocBook
(articles, books and refentry documents) using the
asciidoc(1) command. DocBook can be post-processed to
presentation formats such as HTML, PDF, DVI, roff, LaTeX and
Postscript using the a2x toolchain wrapper and readily
available Open Source tools.
AsciiDoc is configurable: both the AsciiDoc source file
syntax and the backend output markups (which can be almost
any type of SGML/XML markup) can be customized and extended
Python 2.4 or higher.
The latest AsciiDoc version, examples and online
documentation can be downloaded from
