The package 'tabulary' seems to do some weighting between column sizes. It
does not work with \replicate either though.

Probably, but I don't know how. It only seems to work as a column
specifier for the native tabular and tabular* environments. Even just
using the newer ones from array.sty results in this error.

I found it! (in the documentation of array.sty)

*{N}{string} is expanded to n-times string, so |*{3}{L|} works for the
table of types when using tabulary.

Finally! :)

Thanks all for the help! I'm no TeX grue, I just use the stuff. I'll be trying the
stuff posted soon.

BTW I have about 15 files converted to DDoc but a little more than half of them
need find/replace tweaking to escape things like "size_t" -> "size\_t". Anyway,
things progress!

I've updated my tabularx code to use tabulary, result is attached.
I've also made tables with lines, but it seems tabulary doesn't work
quite right with \texttt in a column; the two longest items in type.d's
first table get a line through the last character :(.

I used a bit of a hack to get horizontal lines to work right. This was
needed because my TD macro appends a & at the end of the text, so an
extra column needs to be generated. The TABLE macro now (re)defines
\horizline to \cline{1-\$1}, i.e. a horizontal line over the first N
columns. TR then executes this command.
BUG: this probably breaks nested tables unless they use the same number
of columns :(.

Yeah, I imagine that automatic sed-like replacement you proposed to
Walter would be quite handy there...
version latest

http://www.uidaho.edu/~shro8822/ddoc.zip

Include about 15 converted files. tex.ddoc doesn't (yet) contain Frits
van Bommel's work. I'll probably merge that in latter. There is an
updated doc.ddoc that has some macros added to make the HTML version work.

WARNING: the makefile works (on Linux) but more than half of the .tex
files won't work because of un-escaped special characters

While that would get a PDF version of the /web page/, what I (and I think others) are trying to get is a PDF version of the /D documentation/.
