Liblouis is a Braille translator and back-translator. It features support for computer and literary braille, supports contracted and uncontracted translation for very many languages, and has support for hyphenation. New languages can be added easily through tables that support a rule based or dictionary based approach. It also includes tools for testing and debugging tables. Liblouis also supports math Braille (Nemeth and Marburg). The formatting of Braille is provided by the companion project liblouisxml. Liblouis has features to support screen-reading programs.
mk-configure is a lightweight replacement for GNU autotools written in and for bmake (a portable version of NetBSD make). The main goal is to have only one top-level tool instead of aclocal+automake+autoconf+autoheader. Other goals are clean design, simplicity, and "no code generation".
liblouisxml is a library that provides complete Braille transcription services for XML and text documents. It translates into appropriate Braille codes and formats according to its style sheet and the specifications in the document. xml2brl, a command-line program that uses this library is also included. The latest version of liblouis is required.
XmlPlus xsd2cpp is a tool that compiles an XML schema into C++ data bindings. When invoked on an input XSD file, it generates the C++ sources (implementation/headers) for the supplied XML schema, a main.cpp template to demonstrate how generated sources can be consumed, and the automake/autoconf files for building the generated source.
