Kent, would there be any problem with converting the Hugo Book to a wiki format in terms of copyright? The manual is not open source, as far as I can tell. Just don't want to step on any toes.

Not at all--in fact I'd be thrilled if someone wanted to undertake something like that.

Would the big 1.2 MB HTML file generated from the original manuscript be of any use?

(I'll also get an RTF version of the book available hopefully soon.)

That'd be great. At the very least, I can extract the text so there's no manual typing in of the Hugo Book going on.

If you'd like to send it to me, send to cenazoic AT gmail DOT com.

I think that the easiest way to convert the manual into "wikki" format would involve completely reorganizing the structure of where things go; rather than have it separated into "chapters" and "sections", it would rather be separated into "categories" and "subcategories." That way you could, for example, have categories like "objects," "compiling", "routines", "Verbs", "attributes", and "characters." Then you could have deffinitions of what all of those categories mean--so that if someone just wants to know what a term means he or she can get it right from there--and then in, say, the objects category you could have subcategories like "implamenting a car" or "implamenting a door" so that people who want to nkow how to do specific things can get the info there, as well.

Thanks, Kent. I'll get a wiki set up in the next couple of days. Fair warning: in school, working = slow progress. Of course, the beauty of a wiki is that anyone can contribute. *cough* I'll post the address by Sunday.
