<subject "Quad-Pres" />

<p>
Quad-Pres stands for "Quick and Dirty Presentations" and is a set of perl
scripts and modules that can generate HTML out of (surprise) HTML, and a
file containing the logical structure of the lecture. Alternatively,
<a href="http://thewml.org/">WebMetaLanguage</a> can be used to write the slides
in style.
</p>

<p>
To start using Quad-Pres, download one of the examples here and modify it.
</p>

<p>
You can find documentation and instructions in 
<a href="../lecture/Quad-Pres/slides/">this lecture</a> I prepared.If you
have any other questions contact me at 
<a href="mailto:shlomif@vipe.technion.ac.il">

</a>.
</p>

<h2>Features</h2>

<ol>
<li>
Can work with <a href="http://thewml.org/">WebMetaLanguage</a> or without
it.
</li>
<li>
Organizes the lecture into a hierarchy of sections and subections.
</li>
<li>
Generates tables of contents, and navigation links.
</li>
<li>

</li>
<li>
A common HTML header and footer.

only the first option.

</li>
</ol>

<h2>Examples</h2>

<p>
A <a href="../lecture/Quad-Pres/Quad-Pres-Lecture-Slides.tar.gz">WebMetaLanguage 
example</a>, which requires WML to be built.
</p>

<p>
This file: <a href="perl_lecture2.tar.gz">perl_lecture2.tar.gz</a> contains
the source code and the source for a sample (incomplete) lecture and all of
its contents are distribted under the public domain.
</p>

<p>
This file: <a href="gimp_lecture1.tar.gz">gimp_lecture1.tar.gz</a> contains
the source code (which is more advanced that perl_lecture2), and a sample 
lecture. Again, everything is public domain.
</p>

<p>You can see the final forms of sample lectures 
<a href="http://vipe.technion.ac.il/~shlomif/lecture/">
here</a>.
