Inside this book
In the formatting of this 2002 edition, comments are easily identified by their graphical layout. In my own “plain ASCII” files, I used very much cruder conventions. Those are mostly invisible in this edition, but I list them here for people who are curious to know what the raw (text editor friendly) version would look like: • I delimit italicized text with underscores. (I don’t have any page-long italicized passages, so any such are probably due to loss of “underscore-parity”.) • Embedded comments have “^” as the first non-whitespace on the line. Commands to my formatter (inherited from Kernighan and Plauger’s Software Tools, Addison-Wesley, 1976!) use a similar convention: ^bp page break ^ls n line spacing ^he s define page header ^fo s define page footer • My formatter prints the pair ampersand number sign ( “&#” ) as a single number sign ( “#” ).
Thus, I use “&#&#&#” as a section break. When a number sign ( “#” ) is not preceded by an ampersand, it is supposed to be a single space. (I use this character to force vertical whitespace and as part of the indent for paragraphs.) • Where the first alpha characters on a line are “NOTE”, you are normally seeing a note to the copyeditor. (I use this mostly to flag the beginning of monospace font (eg, Courier) for the Net messages.)
I use tags a lot. In a sense almost anything could become a tag (and a target for grep), but the most formalized tags and their meanings are as follows. AWK The referenced prose seems awkward. (Hopefully most of these are fixed.) BKG The comment is the background. CHAR The comment is related to some character issues. CHKd Issue from CHK comment has been verified. CHK The comment involves something that I should verify.
