automation tool for documenting Mathematica calculations in PDF, HTML, and XHTML

As my special gift to you for the holiday season, I am releasing my
tool for generating documentation from Mathematica calculations for
free use under the GPL v 2.0 license.

You can find samples of its output, which I have improved considerably
in the last month, here:

The tool is called MMADE. I haven't decided how it's pronounced [1] or
for what, exactly, it stands [2].

Here is a link to its project page, which has a download link and
install instructions.

If you have any questions about it, post them to the MathGroup mailing
list or the new MMADE mailing list:

I can't decide if it should be an initialism or an acronym. I am hung
up between the following two choices:

"m m a d e", which fits with: "When life gives you lemons, make MMADE"


"made", as in "When life gave you lemons, you MMADE lemonade."

Again, I am hung up between two choices:
MMA could stand for the old Mathematica abbreviation. DE could stand
for Docbook Exporter (with capitalization that follows the


It could be a recursive abbreviation in the tradition of other open
source projects, such as GNU (GNU's Not Unix). In this case, it would
be MMADE is a MAthematica Docbook Exporter (with capitalization that
follows the abbreviation).
