Web2C: A TeX implementation.
The weave program is used to create a TeX file for viewing a Web pro-
gram. It takes appropriate care of typographic details like page lay-
out and the use of indentation, italics, boldface, etc., and it sup-
plies extensive cross-index information that it gathers automatically.
The command line arguments are the same as for tangle except for the
option: -x says to omit the index, module name list, and table of con-
tents pages. (A CONTENTS.tex file will still be written when the TeX
file is processed, however, unless some macros in webmac.tex are rede-
The output TeX file name is formed by adding .tex to the root of the
Web file name.
There are several macros that probably should be redefined by the pro-
grammer at the beginning of the Web file. It is a good idea to set
\title to the name of the program. And, to cause output of only
changed modules, one can say \let\maybe=\iffalse (usually as the first
change in the change file).
