       htp - HTML preprocessor

       This  manual page documents briefly the htp command.  This manual page was written for the
       Debian distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.  Instead, it
       has documentation in HTML format; see /usr/share/doc/htp.

       htp  is  an  HTML  pre-processor.  It is designed to be a flexible authoring tool that can
       easily be integrated into the design process. htp works by processing special  HTML  files
       and  producing as output regular HTML files ready to be served up. The original HTML files
       are "special" because they (possibly) contain certain markup  tags  only  recognizable  to
       To handle larger sets of files, htp also accepts a response file, which lists input/output
       filename pairs and additional response files. For more information on response files,  see
       the HTML documentation.


       A  summary  of  options  is  included  below.   For  a  complete description, see the HTML
       documentation.  These options can be used on the command-line by preceding their name with
       a '-' or '/' character.

       H, ?   Shows basic usage information.

       IMGXY  Width & height will be added to all image tags. This is the default setting.

              Width & height will not be added to image tags (but not removed if already found).

       QUIET  Pre-processor only displays warnings and error messages.

              Pre-processor displays all informational, warnings, and error messages. This is the
              default setting.

       DEPEND Check target file's dependencies before processing. If the input file,  or  any  of
              the  file  it may INCLUDE have changed, it will continue and build the output file.
              Otherwise, a simple informational message will be printed and no action will occur.
              This is the default setting.

              Dependency checking will not occur during processing.

              Normally,  if  htp  cannot  finish processing a file, it will delete the incomplete
              output file to prevent using it accidentally. However, if this  is  not  desirable,
              the PRECIOUS option will turn off this behavior.

              All  HTML  will  be  condensed, which is merely stripping it of all linefeeds. HTML
              does not require any carriage returns or linefeeds, so the  format  of  the  output
              will  not be changed. However, file sizes will be somewhat smaller, and should load
              a little faster, especially over a slow link.

              This disables condensing the output. This is the default setting.

       DELIM  This can be set to either HTML, CURLY or SQUARE. Each setting  determines  how  htp
              markups  should be surrounded in the text. HTML indicates using arrow brackets ('<'
              and '>') just like standard HTML tags. CURLY means tags  should  be  surrounded  by
              curly  braces  ('{' and '}'). SQUARE uses square brackets ('[' and ']') to surround
              htp tags. Note that this only applies to the  special  htp  tags  and  not  to  the
              standard  HTML  tags, including IMG (which htp can process.) The default setting is
