MirOS Manual: soelim(1)

SOELIM(1)                    BSD Reference Manual                    SOELIM(1)

NAME

     soelim - eliminate occurences of .so 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.

     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)

HISTORY

     The soelim command appeared in 3.0BSD.

BUGS

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