OmniMark at Work
SGML University Press is proud to announce OmniMark At Work Volume 1: Getting Started
By Brian E. Travis
OmniMark At Work, Volume 1: Getting Started, is the first in a multi-volume set of hands-on books from SGML University Press dedicated to the OmniMark programming language. The book is targeted at programmers who are new to the language, and to experienced programmers who are new to version 3.
OmniMark At Work starts with a chapter called "OmniMark for the Impatient". This chapter is designed for the person who needs to understand the concepts of OmniMark, and who wants to get a feeling for the language without spending time drudging through reference manuals to get started. This chapter has several programs that are highly documented, to show you what is happening at every step.
There are plenty of tips throughout the book, and lots of code that you can integrate into your OmniMark programs. There are routines for converting RTF to SGML, translating SGML to HTML, examples of internal and external functions, transforming one SGML structure to another, creating "well-formed documents" for XML, and many more.
The book comes with a companion CD-ROM that contains all program code examples in the book, along with an evaluation version of OmniMark. In the book are hundreds of OmniMark code examples that were actually processed as the document was produced. This means that every OmniMark code example in the book has been tested, and works.
OmniMark At Work, Volume 1: Getting Started, is available now for US$65 (plus tax and shipping, if applicable). Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Corporate purchase order.
