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

NAME
     soelim -- eliminate .so's from nroff input

SYNOPSIS
     soelim [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 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.

     Note that 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)

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

HISTORY
     The soelim	command	appeared in 3.0BSD.

BSD				 June 6, 1993				   BSD
