       soelim - interpret .so requests in groff input


       soelim [ -Cv ] [ -Idir ] [ files... ]

       It  is  possible  to have whitespace between the -I command line option
       and its parameter.


       soelim reads files and replaces lines of the form

              .so file

       by the contents of file.  It is useful if files included with  so  need
       to  be  preprocessed.   Normally,  soelim should be invoked with the -s
       option of groff.

       Note that there must be no whitespace between the leading dot  and  the
       two  characters  ā€˜sā€™ and ā€˜oā€™.  Otherwise, only groff interprets the .so
       request (and soelim ignores it).


       -C     Recognize .so even when followed by a character other than space
              or newline.

       -Idir  This  option  may  be  used to specify a directory to search for
              files (both those on the command line and  those  named  in  .so
              lines).   The  current directory is always searched first.  This
              option may be specified more than once, the directories will  be
              searched  in  the  order specified.  No directory search is per-
              formed for files specified using an absolute path.

       -v     Print the version number.
