Soelim reads the specified files or the standard input and performs the textual inclusion implied by the nroff directives of the form
when they appear at the beginning of input lines. This is useful since programs such as tbl do not normally do this; it allows the place-
ment of individual tables in separate files to be run as a part of a large document.
An argument consisting of a single minus (-) is taken to be a file name corresponding to the standard input.
Note that inclusion can be suppressed by using `'' instead of `.', i.e.
A sample usage of soelim would be
soelim exum?.n | tbl | nroff -ms | col | lpr
