1The files in this directory show mom in action. 2 3If you have downloaded and untarrred a version of mom from her 4homepage, you'll see that none of the example files come with 5corresponding PostScript (.ps) files, as they do with pre-compiled 6versions of groff, or groff built from source. 7 8I haven't included the PostScript output because I want to 9keep the mom archive as lean as possible. To view the PostScript 10output, process the files with groff and either 11 12 a) send the output to a separate file for previewing with a 13 PostScript viewer such as gv (ghostview), or 14 15 b) to your printer. 16 17Using the file sample_docs.mom as an example, you would 18accomplish a) like this: 19 20 groff -mom -Tps sample_docs.mom > sample_docs.ps 21 gv sample_docs.ps 22 23Accomplishing b) depends on your printer setup, but a fairly 24standard way to do it would be 25 26 groff -mom -Tps sample_docs.mom | lpr 27 28 or 29 30 groff -mom -Tps -l sample_docs.mom 31 32Note: I don't recommend previewing with gxditview because it doesn't 33render some of mom's effects properly. 34 35The files themselves 36-------------------- 37 38All are set up for 8.5x11 inch paper (US letter). 39 40***typesetting.mom** 41 42The file, typesetting.mom, demonstrates the use of typesetting tabs, 43string tabs, line padding, multi-columns and various indent styles, 44as well as some of the refinements and fine-tuning available via 45macros and inline escapes. 46 47Because the file also demonstrates a "cutaround" using a small 48picture (of everybody's favourite mascot, Tux), the PostScript file, 49penguin.ps has been included in the directory. 50 51***sample_docs.mom*** 52 53The file, sample_docs.mom, shows examples of three of the document 54styles available with the mom's document processing macros, as well 55as demonstrating the use of COLLATE. 56 57The PRINTSTYLE of this file is TYPESET, to give you an idea of mom's 58default behaviour when typesetting a document. 59 60The last sample, set in 2 columns, shows off mom's flexibility 61when it comes to designing documents. 62 63If you'd like to see how mom handles exactly the same file when the 64PRINTSTYLE is TYPEWRITE (i.e. typewritten, double-spaced), simply 65change 66 67 .PRINTSTYLE TYPESET 68 69to 70 71 .PRINTSTYLE TYPEWRITE 72 73near the top of the file. 74 75***letter.mom*** 76 77This is just the tutorial example from the momdocs, ready for 78previewing. 79 80***elvis_syntax.new*** 81 82For those who use the vi clone, elvis, you can paste this file into 83your elvis.syn. Provided your mom documents have the extension 84.mom, they'll come out with colorized syntax highlighting. The 85rules in elvis_syntax aren't exhaustive, but they go a LONG way to 86making mom files more readable. 87 88The file elvis_syntax (for pre-2.2h versions of elvis) is no longer 89being maintained. Users are encouraged to update to elvis 2.2h or 90higher, and to use elvis_syntax.new for mom highlighting. 91 92I'll be very happy if someone decides to send me syntax highlighting 93rules for emacs. :) 94 95***mom.vim*** 96 97Christian V. J. Brüssow has kindly contributed a set of mom syntax 98highlighting rules for use with vim. Copy the file to your 99~/.vim/syntax directory, then, if your vim isn't already set up to 100do so, enable mom syntax highlighting with 101 102 :syntax enable 103 104or 105 106 :syntax on 107 108Please note: I don't use vim, so I won't be making changes to this 109file myself. Christian Brüssow is the maintainer of the ruleset, 110which is available on the Web at 111 112 http://www.cvjb.de/comp/vim/mom.vim 113 114Contact Christian (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any suggestions or 115requests.
