HISTORY
       The GNU shtool subst command was	originally written by Ralf S.
       Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com> in 2001 for GNU shtool.  It was
       prompted	by the need to have a uniform and convenient patching frontend
       to sed(1) operations in the OpenPKG package specifications.

SEE ALSO
       shtool(1), sed(1).
