SOELIM(1) BSD Reference Manual SOELIM(1)
soelim - eliminate occurences of .so from nroff input
soelim [file ...]
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
The soelim command appeared in 3.0BSD.
The format of the source commands must involve no strangeness; exactly one blank must precede and no blanks follow the file name. MirOS BSD #10-current November 22, 2009 1
