NAME
     soelim - interpret .so requests in manpages

SYNOPSIS
     soelim [-Crtv] [-I dir] [file ...]

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

           .so anotherfile

     If a line starts with: ``.so anotherfile'' it replaces the line by
     processing ``anotherfile''.  Otherwise the line is printed to stdout.

     -C      Recognise .so when it is not followed by a space character.

     -r      Compatibility with groff's soelim(1) (does nothing).

     -t      Compatibility with groff's soelim(1) (does nothing).

     -v      Compatibility with groff's soelim(1) (does nothing).

     -I dir  This option specifies directories where soelim searches for files
             (both those on the command line and those named in ``.so''
             directive.)  This option may be specified multiple times.  The
             directories will be searched in the order specified.

     The files are always searched first in the current directory.

     A file specified with an absolute path will be opened directly without
     performing a search.
