NAME

       templatespp - preprocessor based on templates parser

SYNOPSIS

       templatespp [-o file] file

DESCRIPTION

       templatespp  is  a  pre-processor  based on the template parser. It is generally used from
       scripts to process files and  generate  other  files.   One  of  the  possible  uses,  for
       instance, is to write the CSS (style-sheet) of a web site as a template file (for instance
       `mycss.tcss'), and use template parser structures in there. This is a good  way  to  share
       colors for instance, or to name constants, as is often done in Ada code.

       Here is a small example of such a CSS:

            @@SET@@ COLOR1=blue
            @@SET@@ COLOR2=red
            @@SET@@ LENGTH1=10

            body {background:@_COLOR1_@}
            div  {background:@_COLOR2_@}
            ul.class {background:@_COLOR1_@}  /* same color as body */

            ul   {width:@_ADD(3):LENGTH1_@px} /* ul 3 pixels wider than li */
            li   {width:@_LENGTH1_@px}

       Such a file would be processed with the following command line:

            templatespp -o mycss.css mycss.tcss

OPTIONS

       -h     Display a summary of options.

       -o file
              Write the output to file.
