Author's Note: I'd have posted this to the 'Software Recommendations' Stack Exchange if I'd seen any questions posted about literate-programming software when I did a cursory search there, but I didn't, so here I am…
I've been meaning to do some literate programming in the near future, so I did a Google search for it and came upon this web page of tool recommendations, which at first looked like a good listing. Upon further inspection, however, my initial impressions of it proved to be somewhat rushed and naïve, as it doesn't exactly seem to state unequivocally which of the tools it lists is the most standard, commonly accepted best practice, or most modern I should work with. From what I've read around the Web so far, the original WEB was for Pascal and CWEB was for C, but both are obsolete.
Neither of these would help me, though, since I need something that works with C++, specifically that language's 2011, 2014, and upcoming 2017 revisions. That consideration, therefore, left
noweb to me as a prominent option. I was going to use it, but then, alas, I discovered to my chagrin that it, too, is deemed obsolete, at least by the watermark on its CTAN listing, and, according to its homepage, has not seen a new release for over six years! Given this unpleasant surprise, can anybody recommend me a more modern literate-programming tool or toolchain usable with LaTeX that is still seeing developer maintenance to use?
