soelim [files ]

A preprocessor that reads nroff /troff input files , resolving and then eliminating .so requests. That is, input lines such as:

.so header

are replaced by the contents of the file header . Normally, .so requests are resolved by nroff or troff . Use soelim whenever you are preprocessing the input (e.g., passing it through tbl or sed ), and the complete text is needed prior to formatting.


Run a sed script on (all) input before formatting:

soelim file | sed -e 's/--/\\(em/g' | nroff -mm - | lp
