NAME
     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 pro-
     grams 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 pre-
     cede and no blanks follow the file name.
