makedict.pl and makedicthtml.pl

Description

makedict.pl is a Perl script for creating TeX formatted representations of CIF dictionaries. It was used to create the chapters in Part 4 of the printed version of International Tables for Crystallography Volume G: Definition and Exchange of Crystallographic Data from the corresponding dictionary files. A simplified version of the script was discussed as an illustrative example in Chapter 5.3. makedicthtml.pl is a similar application developed to create the HTML versions of the CIF dictionaries distributed on the accompanying CD-ROM and on the IUCr web site. Both programs require the STAR::Parser family of Perl modules.
