==== Description: ====
The GURGLE program reads record and field information from a dBase3+ file,
delimited ascii text file or from an SQL query to a RDBMS and produces a
report listing. Although the program was originally designed to produce
TeX/LaTeX formatted output, plain ascii text, troff, PostScript, HTML, XML,
shell scripts or any other kind of ascii based output format can be produced
just as easily.

The program is ideal for generating large bodies of text where small parts of
that text are substituted with information from a database. So its great for
generating mainly static web pages which have small amounts of dynamic

The formatting process of is controlled by a definition file which holds the
report, page, and record layouts, what fields to display, and where. Other
useful functions supported in the definition file include sorting, filtering,
and data manipulation of records in the databases.
