10 Glossary
Printed documentation:
 Sheets of paper resulting from
actually typesetting and printing a documentation file.
Product file:
 An output file, generated by the Tangle
component of FunnelWeb, that contains the expansion of the
macros in the input file. Note: Other names considered for this
were: generated file, expanded file, result file, program file, and
tangle file.
Scanner:
 A component of the FunnelWeb program that scans a
copy of the input file in memory and generates a line list and a
token list to be fed to the parser. The scanner processes the
input at the lexical level.

Shell:
 A command language interpreter built into the
FunnelWeb program. The interpreter allows the user to invoke
FunnelWeb proper many times during a single invocation of the
FunnelWeb program.
Special character:
 A distinguished character in a FunnelWeb
input file that introduces a special sequence. By default the
special character is "
@
". However, it can be changed using the
"
@=
" special sequence.
Special sequence:
 A special sequence is a construct introduced
by the special character. Special sequences are used to define a
structure in a FunnelWeb input file that exists at a higher level
to the surrounding text. A FunnelWeb input file may be
considered to be a sequence of text and special sequences.
Tangle:
 This is the name for the component of FunnelWeb that
generates one or more product files containing the expansion of
macros in the input file.
Typesetting directive:
 A FunnelWeb directive whose sole
effect is to modify the way in which the input file is represented
in the documentation file.
