My notes from Paul's talk. Sketchy, I'm afraid; I was distracted with
a nasty work problem up the back.

- Literate programming with Paul Matthews
 - A literate programming system written in Perl
 - Keep code and documentation together
 - sections are in rtf
 - use whatever editor which can save in rtf
  - print document normally (e.g. Word, staroffice)
  - save as rtf
  - use Paul's perl code to pull out the code from the RTF sections
   - magic header surrounds the code chunks - includes filename
 - code available from sourceforge

I'll try to do better next time :-)
