Hello All.

I have reconstituted Jon Bentley's DFORMAT preprocessor (troff and awk
source) and made it available on GitHub.  See
https://github.com/arnoldrobbins/dformat.

This is an awk program that reads a description of data layouts, such
as registers or network packets, and generates PIC descriptions.

A Makefile generates PDF from the dformat.ms file using GNU troff.

Jon Bentley was helpful in the final stages, including contributing
his original files.

Enjoy!

Arnold Robbins

Hom much does it differ from the one in "Plan 9 from User Space", https://github.com/9fans/plan9port <https://github.com/9fans/plan9port>.
BTW, there it is called "bwk's dformat"[1].

It's misattributed. It's Bentley's code.  But nice of them to include it.

I opened a github issue.
