 NAME
      soelim - eliminate .so's from nroff input

 SYNOPSIS
      soelim [file ...]

 DESCRIPTION
      soelim reads the specified files or the standard input and performs
      the textual inclusion implied by nroff directives of the form

	   .so some_file

      when they appear at the beginning of input lines.	 This is useful when
      using programs such as tbl(1) that do not normally do this, allowing
      placement of individual tables or other text objects 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 . at the
      start of the line as in:

	   'so /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.s

 EXAMPLES
      soelim is often used in a context similar to the following:

	   soelim exum?.n | tbl | nroff -mm | col | lp

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

 SEE ALSO
      more(1), nroff(1), tbl(1).
