Zoem is a macro/programming language. Zoem project can be used as an all-round macro language, but has more specialized uses as well.

One such specific use is its support for creating small mark-up languages that map to different devices. It has character filtering capabilities tailored to this application.

Two such languages come packaged with zoem; one for creating manual pages that can be output either in troff or in HTML, the other for creating FAQs again in either troff or HTML output.

It supports arithmetic evaluation, regular expressions, multidimensional data storage, iteration, comprehensive IO, control operators, dictionary stacks, system commands, and more.

What's New in This Release:
A mechanism for testing and retrieving environment variables was added, and the code base has seen some clean-ups.
