Fix errors in Hacking BRL-CAD book #3

BRL-CAD was selected to participate in the 2013 Google Summer of Code Doc Camp. A team of contributors got together in California, brainstormed, and wrote an entire book for BRL-CAD in just a few days. They created a guide for contributing to BRL-CAD.

The text of this guide was converted in DocBook XML format, from which other formats (HTML, PDF, man page, etc.) can be generated. So there is an XML file to generate the Hacking BRL-CAD book. But this file is missing all the structuring elements.



  • doc/docbook/books/en/HACKING_BRL-CAD.xml

This task involves inserting all missing "chapter", "para" and "programlisting" tags into the XML file for 2-3 chapters worth of material.

Download our sources, edit the Code file, submit your changes (ideally in patch format if you can figure out how to do that).
