In particular, it performs a limited syntax check, tests the presence of
local links, images, etc., strips useless white-spaces and, most importantly,
provides a powerful way of defining HTML-like macros. This is particularly
useful to keep a consistent style across a number of pages and saves time
when things must be changed globally.
For example, have a look at the bar at the bottom of all my pages, this is
created automatically in every page so that the button corresponding to the
same page is 'shaded' automatically, all I have to write in the 'source file'
<STDNAVBAR> while in my macros file I have the full
definition of the
Another very useful feature of HSC is the automatic handling of
project files and dependencies, this means that HSC can be
effectively used like a C compiler using a Makefile. Due to the way HTML
filenames are handled on RISC OS by the various browsers we had to compile a
special port of the PDMake utility so that the Makefile can use
files in Unix notation (eg.
../MyHTML/fsck.html corresponding to
^.MyHTML.fsck/html under RISC OS).
The RISC OS-specific sources have been included in the main HSC sources archive so you can download them directly from the hsc - Support page and compile the program yourself.
For more information, documentation and sources of HSC you can look the hsc - Support page. Other informations about HSC and its RISC OS port can be found on the Nick Craig-Wood's hsc page.
