NAME

backend-spec - interface between jw and its backends  

DESCRIPTION

jw(1) calls backends like backends/html to do the "real" conversion work. The backend gets all necessary data delivered via environment variables ready to use.

This documentation describes those environment variables.

The backend is run in the directory where the output files are to be created. It should return 0 if there weren't any problem, and return a positive value otherwise.  

VARIABLES

SGML_FILE_NAME
The bare name of the source file

SGML_JADE

SGML_ARGUMENTS

SGML_CATALOG_FILES
The list of catalog files needed by Jade or OpenJade

SGML_STYLESHEET
