# RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for weave (redhat section 1)

```WEAVE(1)										 WEAVE(1)

NAME
weave - translate WEB to TeX

SYNOPSIS
weave [ -x ] webfile[.web] [ changefile[.ch] ]

DESCRIPTION
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
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).
