  • You might also have an interest in the latest version of nisus [nisus.com] which now supports Perl filters/macros. According to the PDF manual [nisus.com] (pp 111,112), you can opt to have a macros work with RTF rather than plain text. The script will get RTF input and the script's output will be interpreted as RTF.

    I used to use Nisus back when I was a phil student at UCSD. It's a great word processor (my favorite of the many I've used on various platforms over two decades). Now that I'm not writting papers every day, I no longer bother to purchase nice word processing apps and just use free applications for my limited word processing needs. This feature almost makes me wish I had some daily word processing to do so I could monkey about with Nisus+Perl. As it is, I don't think I can justify the time/money. One can't play with all the cool toys out there...

    Instead, I drop this note in your lap with the weak hope that you'll play with Nisus and I'll live vicariously through your fun ;)
