SOELIM(1) User Commands SOELIM(1)


NAME


soelim - resolve and eliminate .so requests from nroff or troff input

SYNOPSIS


soelim [filename]...


DESCRIPTION


soelim reads the specified files or the standard input and performs the
textual inclusion implied by the nroff(1) directives of the form:

.so somefile


when they appear at the beginning of input lines.


This is useful as programs such as tbl(1) do not normally do this. It
allows the placement of individual tables in separate files to be run as
a part of a large document.


An argument consisting of - is taken to be a file name corresponding to
the standard input.


Inclusion can be suppressed by using a single quote (') instead of a dot
(.) that is,

' so /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.s
