NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       zsoelim - satisfy .so requests in roff input

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       zsoelim [-CVh] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       zsoelim	parses	file arguments, or if none are specified, its standard
       input for lines of the form:

       .so <filename>

       These requests are replaced by the contents of the filename  specified.
       If the request cannot be met, zsoelim looks for filename.ext where .ext
       can be one of .gz, .Z or .z.  Other extension types  may  be  supported
       depending  upon	compile  time options.	If the request can be met by a
       compressed file, this file is decompressed using an appropriate	decompressor
 and its output is used to satisfy the request.

       Traditionally, soelim programs were used to allow roff preprocessors to
       be able to preprocess the files referred to by the requests.  This particular
	version  was written to circumvent problems created by support
       for compressed manual pages.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       -C     This flag is available for compatibility with other soelim  programs.
   Its use is to enable .so requests followed by something
	      other than whitespace.  As this is already  the  default	behaviour,
 it is ignored.

       -h     Print a help message and exit.

       -V     Display version and author information.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
