       sgmlpre - handle SGML conditionalization for SGML-tools

       sgmlpre [options] ...

       This manual page documents briefly the sgmlpre commands.  This manual page was written for
       the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page
       for sgmlpre.

       sgmlpre is a program that handle SGML conditionalization for SGML-tools

       It  is used by other programs in sgml-tools (v1), and usually normal user does not need to
       use this program directly by himself.

       Following is quoted from the header in the source code.

	      Filter  SGML  according  to conditionalizing markup.  Argument/value pairs from the
	      command line are matched against the attributes of <#if> and <#unless> tags.  Spans
	      between  <#if>/</#if>  are  passed  through unaltered if there is no attribute mis-
	      match; spans between <#unless></#unless> are  passed  if	there  is  at  least  one
	      attribute  mismatch.  An attribute mismatch happens  if an attribute occurs in both
	      the command-line arguments and the tag, but the values do not match.  Value  match-
	      ing is by string equality, except that "|" is interpreted as an alternation charac-
	      ter.  Even if a span is not passed through, its newlines are (this to avoid messing
	      up the line  numbers in error messages).

	      This lexer requires flex.  Limitations; attribute names may only be 256 chars long,
	      values may be only 16384 (YY_BUF_SIZE) characters long.  Doesn't do  checking  that
	      only </if> matches <if> and </unless> matches <unless> (that would need a stack and
	      introduce another limit).

       The program does not support normal command line options.
