       strip_stx - a simple literate programming tool


       strip_stx [ -c commentchars ] [ -B open  close ] [ file  file ... ]


       strip_stx  takes all structured text (Stx) markup away from the listed files, leaving only
       text in preformatted blocks.  If no files are listed, standard input is read instead.  The
       result is written to standard output.

       This  is  intended  as  a  simple  literate  programming tool: programmers may write their
       programs as documents, processing them with stx2any for documentation and publication  but
       with strip_stx for compilation / running the code.

       More information about Stx is on the manpage of stx2any.


          -c commentchars
                 comment  out  the  non-code portions (text outside preformatted blocks) with the
                 given commentchars at the beginning of every line.  If this option (or the  next
                 one) is not given, non-code portions are simply deleted.

          -B open  close
                 surround  the  non-code portions with (comment-)opening and closing markers open
                 and close respectively.  This option can be used together with the -c option.

          --version, -V
                 Just show version information and exit.

          --help, -?
                 Just show a short help message and exit.


               strip_stx >

       Strip documentation away from the source file, supposedly only leaving python
       code there.

               strip_stx -B '/*' ' */' -c ' * ' my.c.stx > my.c

       Make  a  literate  C code document into proper C source file, leaving the documentation in
       neatly-formatted comments.

               strip_stx -B 'cat < < EOT' 'EOT' embshell.stx >

       Turn the document embshell.stx into an “embedded  shell”  script,  where  all  non-program
       portions  are printed to the standard output when execution reaches them.  This is akin to
       PHP or eperl; but strip_stx is not really meant for this.  There  are  other  options  for
       making  embedded  scripts,  such  as  defining  your  own  markup for the code portions or
       handling the program logic with m4 within stx2any.
