SOELIM(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		     SOELIM(1)

NAME
     soelim -- interpret .so requests in manpages

SYNOPSIS
     soelim [-Crtv] [-I	dir] [file ...]

DESCRIPTION
     The soelim	utility	reads the specified files or the standard input	and
     performs the textual inclusion implied by the nroff(1) directives of the
     form:

	   .so anotherfile

     If	a line starts with: ".so anotherfile" it replaces the line by process-
     ing "anotherfile".	 Otherwise the line is printed to stdout.

     -C	     Recognise .so when	it is not followed by a	space character.

     -r	     Compatibility with	groff's	soelim(1) (does	nothing).

     -t	     Compatibility with	groff's	soelim(1) (does	nothing).

     -v	     Compatibility with	groff's	soelim(1) (does	nothing).

     -I	dir  This option specifies directories where soelim searches for files
	     (both those on the	command	line and those named in	".so" direc-
	     tive.)  This option may be	specified multiple times.  The direc-
	     tories will be searched in	the order specified.

     The files are always searched first in the	current	directory.

     A file specified with an absolute path will be opened directly without
     performing	a search.
