Makefile for HTML documentation

I wanted to be able to read the current SVN docs as HTML, so I put together a small Makefile (to go in the docs directory):

.SUFFIXES = .txt .html

%.html : %.txt $< $@

objects := $(patsubst %.txt,%.html,$(wildcard *.txt))
all: $(objects)

Assumes docutils and on your path, and GNU Make. Running make processes any .txt files to .html as needed. Will add as an attachment too to preserve tabs.

Version: magic-removalSVN

Switched to SVN version since magic-removal is no longer relevant.

comment:3 by Andy Dustman <farcepest@…>, 18 years ago which comes with distutils will also do the same job, although it always rebuilds everything, unlike make which only rebuilds when the source is modified.

Resolution: duplicate
Status: newclosed

I think we can mark this as a duplicate of #528, #528 is about a PDF/HTML generator.
On the other hand this patch requires make and and the first one can be a bit tricky to have on some platforms (win..)

So, marking as duplicate of #528 ;)
