Lout features equation formatting, tables, diagrams, rotation and scaling, sorted indexes, bibliographic databases, running headers and odd-even pages and automatic cross-referencing.

Version 2.05 includes a translator from Lout to PostScript and documentation. and runs under Unix and on the Amiga.
