Welcome to the OmniMark documentation

The documentation is divided into six areas:

  • Concepts explains how the OmniMark language works.
  • Tasks explains how to solve common programming problems with OmniMark.
  • Syntax explains the use of each OmniMark keyword.
  • Libraries introduces the function libraries shipped with OmniMark.
  • OMX introduces and explains the OmniMark extension (OMX) components shipped with OmniMark. To understand OMX components see the OMX concept.
  • Errors lists the program errors and markup errors that you may encounter in your programs.

You can find just about anything by using the main index. You can also use the table of contents for each area. If you use the documentation set on the OmniMark website, you can also use full text search to find what you are looking for. (Also, the version of the documentation on the website may be more up to date than the one you originally downloaded.)

If you are new to OmniMark, start by reading the concept About OmniMark. It contains links to other concepts that will help you learn about the language.

For an introduction to development tools and configuring your system for OmniMark, see the concept Developing and Running OmniMark programs.

For an overview of what's new and what's fixed in this release, see What's new and What's fixed.
