DESCRIPTION

       Converts a .sty file (LaTeX package) to .dtx format (documented LaTeX source), by
       surrounding macro definitions with 'macro' and 'macrocode' environments.  The macro name
       is automatically inserted as an argument to the 'macro' environemnt.  Code lines outside
       macro definitions are wrapped only in 'macrocode' environments. Empty lines are removed.
       The script is not thought to be fool proof and 100% accurate but rather as a good start to
       convert undocumented style files to .dtx files.

   Basic Usage
            perl sty2dtx.pl infile [infile ...] outfile

       or

            perl sty2dtx.pl < file.sty > file.dtx

   Supported Definitions
       The following macro definitions are detected when they are at the start of a line (can be
       prefixed by \global, \long, \protected and/or \outer):

           \def   \edef   \gdef   \xdef
           \newcommand{\name}     \newcommand*{\name}
           \newcommand\name       \newcommand*\name
           \renewcommand{\name}   \renewcommand*{\name}
           \renewcommand\name     \renewcommand*\name
           \providecommand{\name} \providecommand*{\name}
           \providecommand\name   \providecommand*\name
           \@namedef{\name}       \@namedef\name

       The following environment definitions are detected when they are at the start of a line:

           \newenvironment{name}  \renewenvironemnt{name}  \provideenvironment{name}

       The macro and environment definition must either end at the same line or with a '"}"' on
       its own on a line.

USAGE

         sty2dtx [<options>] [--<VAR>=<VALUE> ...] [--] [<infile(s)>] [<outfile>]

   Files
       · can be '"-"' for STDIN or STDOUT, which is the default if no files are given

       · multiple input files are merged to one output file

   Variables
       Variables can be defined using

         --<VAR>=<VALUE>

       or

         --<VAR> <VALUE>

       and will be used for substitutions in the template file.

       Common variables:

             author, email, maintainer, year (for copyright),
             version, date, description (of package/class),
             type (either 'package' default or 'class'),
             filebase (automatically set from output or input file name),

   Options
       -h           Print this help text
       -H           Print extended help
       -V           Print version and copyright
       -v           Be verbose
       -o output    Use given file as output
       -O           Overwrite already existing output file(s)
       -B           Use basename of single input file for output file
       -I           Also create .ins (install) file
       -c           Only use code section (like v1.0)
       -r           Remove existing 'macro', 'macrocode', etc. environments.
       -R           Do not remove existing 'macro', 'macrocode', etc. environments.
       -i ins-file  Create .ins file with given name
       -t template  Use this file as template instead of the default one
       -T template  Use this file as template for the .ins file
       -e file      Export default .dtx template to file and exit
       -E file      Export default .ins template to file and exit
       -D           Use current date as file date
       -F file      Read more options and variables from file.
       -N           Do not read default config file; must be the first option

   Config files
       A default config file either named 'sty2dtx.cfg' or '.sty2dtx.cfg' is searched in the
       current directory, the users home directory and the directory of this script, in this
       order. The first one found is loaded.  If none is found the 'texmf' tree is searched for a
       'sty2dtx.cfg' config file.  As with -F files the config file should contain one option or
       variable per line.  Lines starting with '"%"' or '"#"' are ignored.

Examples

       Produce 'file.dtx' from 'file.sty':

           sty2dtx.pl < file.sty > file.dtx

       or

           sty2dtx.pl file.sty file.dtx

       or

           sty2dtx.pl -B file.sty

       Produce 'file.dtx' and 'file.ins' from 'file.sty':

           sty2dtx.pl -I file.sty file.dtx

       or

           sty2dtx.pl file.sty -i file.sty file.dtx

       or

           sty2dtx.pl -IB file.sty

       Set custom variable values:

           sty2dtx.pl --author Me --email me@there.com mypkg.sty mypkg.dtx

       Produce DTX file for a class:

           sty2dtx.pl --type class mycls.sty mycls.dtx
