SOELIM(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		     SOELIM(1)

NAME
     soelim — eliminate .so's from nroff input

SYNOPSIS
     soelim [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

SEE ALSO
     colcrt(1), more(1)

BUGS
     The format of the source commands must involve no strangeness - exactly
     one blank must precede and no blanks follow the file name.

HISTORY
     The soelim command appeared in 3.0BSD.
