Re: open forum on braille, how to make it and how to get it

AWK or PERL is the right way to go for preparing braille files on the Unix side.
The final solution should be plain vanilla UNIX so it can
run on anyone's UNIX box without grabbing a special purpose executable.
My current solution uses plain vanilla UNIX but for a c filter that
adds a running head escape code, the file name, a running head end escape
code, and any other format strings to the beginning of the file to make
it braille ready. I'll pass the script along once I can eliminate
the c filter cluge.
