How I used Linux to Create/Maintain this Website

My HOWTOs

I'm the author/maintainer of 5 HOWTOs for Linux. They are part of the Linux Documentation Project (LDP) which is barely alive today (2017) and there's no easy way for me to submit revisions like I forerly did by just sending updates to LDP. So I've decided to put the latest versions here on my own website.

HOWTOs:

Modem-howto
Plug-and-Play-howto
Serial-howto
Text-Terminal-howto
Howtos-with-Linuxdoc

Linuxdoc (a simple markup language)
Comparing LinuxDoc to DocBook
Macro definitions for LinuxDoc when using the vim editor

Serial Programming HOWTO Read Hoxie's first.

Serial-Programming-HOWTO-B.html by Peter Baumann

Serial Archive by Vern Hoxie (deceased) Serial archive from 1990's: serial_suite.tgz gzipped and tarred; extract with tar. Was once on his ftp site: scicom.alphacdc.com/pub/linux.
