This requires creole modifications (I think) and doc generation changes.

It also needs some idea of what a text version of the manual should look like and how it would be used.

Here is a quick way of doing this right now:

$ cd euphoria/docs 
$ eudoc -a --single -o manual.txt 
$ creole -A manual.txt 
$ lynx -print -dump manual.txt > euphoria-manual.txt 

The result is:

I don't like the spacing of the pre tags with the p tags, however it is usable. There is another tool called html2txt (or something like that) which provides all sorts of nice formatting options. Ideally, of course, it would be nice to have TEXT as an output format directly from creole.
