Can't say I have used it -- just got it :) Seems to be a collection of
batch files that integrate a number of docbook output generation tools.
It'll install itself into c:\docbook\ without further warning or advise.
Luckily it seems that the installation is little more than copying of
files. It also seems that with a bit of configuration in the batch files,
one can easily move it to somewhere else.
In c:\docbook\bat\ you find what seems to be the core of the tool suite: a
number of batch files to work on docbook documents.
