NAME
       zsoelim - satisfy .so requests in roff input

SYNOPSIS
       zsoelim [-CVh] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
       zsoelim	parses	file arguments, or if none are specified, its standard input for lines of
       the form:

       .so <filename>

       These requests are replaced by the contents of the filename  specified.	 If  the  request
       cannot  be  met,  zsoelim  looks  for filename.ext where .ext can be one of .gz, .Z or .z.
       Other extension types may be supported  depending  upon	compile  time  options.   If  the
       request	can  be  met by a compressed file, this file is decompressed using an appropriate
       decompressor and its output is used to satisfy the request.

       Traditionally, soelim programs were used to allow roff preprocessors to be able to prepro-
       cess  the  files referred to by the requests.  This particular version was written to cir-
       cumvent problems created by support for compressed manual pages.

OPTIONS
       -C, --compatible
	      This flag is available for compatibility with other soelim programs.  Its use is to
	      enable  .so  requests  followed  by  something  other  than whitespace.  As this is
	      already the default behaviour, it is ignored.

       -h, --help
	      Print a help message and exit.

       -V, --version
	      Display version information.
