|Title:||ON THE POWER OF TRAPS AND DIVERSIONS IN A DOCUMENTPREPARATION LANGUAGE|
|Abstract:||This note illustrates the power of software interrupts (traps) and text diversions in document preparation languages by considering three difficult problems in typesetting: figure placement; setting text in arbitrary shapes; and balancing final columns in multi-column layout. The solution of each of these in the \fBnroff\fR document preparation system is discussed, and an Appendix gives the \fBnroff\fR macros which accomplish the task.|
