In two previous exercises, we looked at the programs behind the tables of contents pages in chronological order and permuted by keywords. In today’s exercise, we complete this trio of exercises by writing the program that creates the themed table of contents page. Like the others, it is based on the
praxis.info file, which was described previously. We won’t give the output format here, except to say that it is similar to the others, but with an additional header section for the list of themes.
Your task is to write a program that extracts needed data from the
praxis.info file and writes the themed table of contents. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
