Subject: DOCBOOK: generate man pages on Linux

[ please CC replies to me ]

Hello, I have just begun having a look at DocBook for use with
documenting a library I have written.  I would like to produce a man
page, and also HTML from one document.  

I quickly found docbook-to-man, however, it seems to have some

It assumes you are working with C functions. I am, but I also want to
document the Tcl and Python interfaces, and have them displayed

It produces some output which is just plain bad or ugly:


It seems to use a '.ts' file to define how to do these
transformations, and a lot of stuff is hard coded into it (the
parentheses for functions, for instance).

Can anyone advise me on a better efficient tool to use for this?

How can I make the distinction between Tcl and Python code?
