something something else badabeem badaboom verb.


verb something something else badabeem badaboom.

(and a few more of similar transformation rules, like Capitalize the start of the line etc). Now I can fight it out with Word, or do my own little programming myself, or use the windows version of awk, but maybe somebody has an elegant idea/solution for it.
