soelim -- eliminate .so's from nroff input SYNOPSIS
soelim [-I directory] [file ...] 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 The directives need to appear at the beginning of input lines. This is useful since 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 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. 'so /usr/lib/tmac.s A sample usage of soelim would be soelim exum?.n | tbl | nroff -ms | col | lpr The options are as follows: -I Add the specified directory to the search path for input files. SEE ALSO
colcrt(1), more(1) HISTORY
The soelim command appeared in 3.0BSD. BUGS
The format of the source commands must involve no strangeness - exactly one blank must precede and no blanks follow the file name. BSD

soelim - interpret .so requests in groff input SYNOPSIS
soelim [ -Cv ] [ -Idir ] [ files... ] It is possible to have whitespace between the -I command line option and its parameter. DESCRIPTION
soelim reads files and replaces lines of the form .so file by the contents of file. It is useful if files included with so need to be preprocessed. Normally, soelim should be invoked with the -s option of groff. Note that there must be no whitespace between the leading dot and the two characters `s' and `o'. Otherwise, only groff interprets the .so request (and soelim ignores it). OPTIONS
-C Recognize .so even when followed by a character other than space or newline. -Idir This option may be used to specify a directory to search for files (both those on the command line and those named in .so lines). The current directory is always searched first. This option may be specified more than once, the directories will be searched in the order specified. No directory search is performed for files specified using an absolute path. -v Print the version number. SEE ALSO
