-PreScript is a port of a Perl program used by the New Zealand Digital Library project to convert computer science technical reports to HTML. The Perl version is deemed unfit for a public release because the code is quite messy (a consequence of Perl's cumbersome syntax for defining objects). The Python version is considerably easier to understand, maintain, and extend. The technical paper [[http://www.nzdl.org/download/​prescript/​prescript.ps.gz|prescript.ps.gz]] documents the algorithms and heuristics used in PreScript 0.1 - there is an update to this for PreScript 2 inside its distribution archive.+PreScript is a port of a Perl program used by the New Zealand Digital Library project to convert computer science technical reports to HTML.
