From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

     Lout is a batch text formatting system and an embedded
     language by Jeffrey H. Kingston .  The
     language is procedural, with Scribe-like syntax.
     Lout features equation formatting, tables, diagrams, rotation
     and scaling, sorted indexes, bibliographic databases, running
     headers and odd-even pages and automatic cross-referencing.
     Lout is easily extended with definitions which are very much
     easier to write than troff of TeX macros because Lout is
     a high-level language, the outcome of an eight-year research
     project that went back to the beginning.
     Version 2.05 includes a translator from Lout to PostScript
     and documentation. and runs under Unix and on the Amiga.
