Yorick is an interpreted programming language for:
* scientific simulations or calculations
* postprocessing or steering large simulation codes
* interactive scientific graphics
* reading, writing, and translating large files of numbers
the yorick package ships with little documentation: a manpage, the yorick manual in info format, and its own "help" command. this package adds the yorick manual and quick reference in pdf and html format and a utility (update-yorickdoc) to build html documentation for the set of functions (from yorick and add-on packages) installed on this machine. by default, these pages are built and updated automatically whenever necessary.
once this package is installed, simply point your preferred web browser to file:///usr/share/doc/yorick-doc/readme.html .
