SOELIM(1)                   General Commands Manual                  SOELIM(1)



NAME
       soelim - resolve and eliminate .so requests from nroff or troff input

SYNOPSIS
       soelim [ filename ... ]

AVAILABILITY
       This  command  is available with the Text software installation option.
       Refer to for information on how to install optional software.

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

              .so somefile

       when they appear at the beginning of input lines.  This is useful since
       programs such as tbl(1) do not normally do this; it allows  the  place-
       ment  of  individual  tables in separate files to be run as a part of a
       large document.

       An argument consisting of `-' is taken to be a file name  corresponding
       to the standard input.

       Note: inclusion can be suppressed by using `'' instead of `.', that is,

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

EXAMPLE
       A sample usage of soelim would be

              soelim exum?.n | tbl | nroff -ms | col | lpr

SEE ALSO
