Hi all,

I've created a very basic tool for converting requirement documents from the ReqIF format into LaTeX to create PDF documents. It is a xlst file, so a xslt processor is need for doing the transformation.

This XLST has only been tested with one requirement document and one xslt processor (namely xsltproc). I did not read the ReqIF format specification, but was just looking at one ReqIF file that was created with ProR 0.9. So there is no guarantee that it works with any other file. It is unlikely that it works with files that were created using any other tool than ProR.

This is also the first XSLT I ever created. I hacked it together in one afternoon while learning about XSLT. So it's probably not efficient and very buggy.

If you want to give it a shot, please take a look at my github repository:
github.com/federvieh/reqif2latex

There you can also find a README describing how to use the tool. There are a lot of quirks, but what is bugging me the most, is that the original .reqif needs to be modified in order to be accepted by the xslt processor. If anyone has any idea what could be the cause for this, I would appreciate your input.

Best regards,
Frank
