Add_appendix SOFTWARES

Révision : 25 mars 2022


The appendix (VO), annex, add_appendix/annexer (VI), addappendix softwares creates Appendix pages for books from wikibooks.
Requirements for all versions: The mkd[1] must be installed.


  • Lexicon:
    (VO): Original version in french.
    (VI): Internationalized version.
    Compiled book: Collection of article obtained through the menu Create a collection to print with PediaPress or to create an Appendix of books with addappendix.
  1. annexer (VO) is the original version of this appendix page creator software series: annex, add_appendix, addappendix. The messages of the executable scripts are in French, they are executable in the following order: lister, télécharger, ajouter_sclt, ajouter_sclic,, sclipwb, sclipco, or, globally : annexer
    The construction of the appendix page can thus be controlled step by step as provided in the
    "directive destinée à l'apprentissage de la programmation bash"[2].
    - Note -
    The appendix pages of the books and booklets of the schooner Cardabela[3] were produced with this version of June 2020.
  2. annex follows the version annexer (VO). This internationalized version can be used in all languages. The original language of the messages is English as it should be for internationalization with gettext. Scripts are executable successively and are translated individually.
  3. add_appendix/annexer (VI) is the final version after annex. It is composed of the basic files of the annex version to which we have added two scripts intended to facilitate the creation of the book directory containing the files necessary for the execution of the program annex which is a component of it. In the same way the scripts are executable successively, starting with pre-annex
    The Makefile add_appendix.mak facilitates the installation of this version in the user directory ~/Add_appendix
  1. addappendix is the packaged version for easy installation on linux. The ubuntu package can be converted for other systems like fedora, red hat, and others.
    The Makefile addappendix.mak facilitates the installation of this version in the user directory ~/Add_appendix and in the /usr/local system without going through the package.
Characteristics of each software:
  • annexer (VO) is simple, exclusively in French.
  • annex requires a manual action to create the book directory and copy the contents of book to it.You can use pre-annex to create the contents of the book directory.
  • add_appendix/annexer (VI) creates the directory of the book and copies there the files necessary for the execution of the program, it takes into account the summaries, contents, collections.
  • addapendix creates program execution conditions and runs exclusively whith a URL from compiled bookSee Lexicon
