SOELIM(1) BSD General Commands Manual SOELIM(1)NAMEsoelim — eliminate .so's from nroff input
SYNOPSISsoelim [file ...]
Soelim reads the specified files or the standard input and performs the
textual inclusion implied by the nroff(1) directives of the form:
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.
A sample usage of soelim would be
soelim exum?.n | tbl | nroff -ms | col | lpr
SEE ALSOcolcrt(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.
The soelim command appeared in 3.0BSD.
