weave - translate WEB to TeX
weave [ -x ] webfile[.web] [ changefile[.ch] ]
This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this ver-
sion of TeX can be found in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.
The weave program is used to create a TeX file for viewing a Web program. It takes appro-
priate care of typographic details like page layout and the use of indentation, italics,
boldface, etc., and it supplies extensive cross-index information that it gathers automat-
ically. The command line arguments are the same as for tangle except for the option: -x
says to omit the index, module name list, and table of contents pages. (A CONTENTS.tex
file will still be written when the TeX file is processed, however, unless some macros in
webmac.tex are redefined.)
The output TeX file name is formed by adding .tex to the root of the Web file name.
There are several macros that probably should be redefined by the programmer at the begin-
ning of the Web file. It is a good idea to set \title to the name of the program. And,
to cause output of only changed modules, one can say \let\maybe=\iffalse (usually as the
first change in the change file).
