誌謝


原著誌謝

感謝古往今來幫助過我寫完這份導讀的人。感謝 Ashley 幫我將封面設計做成最棒的程式設計師風格、感謝產出自由(free)軟體與套件的所有人,讓我可以做出這份導讀:GNU、Slackware、vim、Python、Inkscape、Apache FOP、Firefox、Red Hat 與許多其它軟體、最後超級感謝數以千計的你們所寫來的改進建議,以及文字上的鼓勵。

我將這份文件獻給我心目中電腦界的大師及鼓勵我的人:Donald Knuth、Bruce Schneier、W. Richard Stevens 與 The Woz、我的讀者、以及整個自由與開放原始碼軟體社群。

這本書是以 XML 撰寫,使用有安裝 GNU tools 的 Slackware Linux 系統與 vim 編輯器。

封面的"藝術"與圖片是使用 Inkscape 產生的,使用客制化的 Python scripts 將 XML 轉換為 HTML 與 XSL-FO。接著用 Apache FOP 將 XSL-FO 輸出檔轉為 Liberation 字型的 PDF 文件檔,Toolchain 100% 都使用自由與開放原始碼軟體。

譯註:上述的封面應是本文件實體書的封面。
