yodl2... - miscellaneous Yodl converters
yodl2... [OPTION]... FILE
This manual page describes the various shell scripts that convert
documents in the Yodl language to other formats. The basic converters
o yodl2html(1): converts to HTML, writes a file with the extension
o yodl2man(1): converts to nroff ‘man’ format, writes .man. Can be
further processed with e.g. nroff -Tascii -man file.man.
o yodl2latex(1): converts to LaTeX output, writes .latex. Can be
further processed with, e.g., latex file.latex.
o yodl2txt(1): converts to plain ASCII, writes .txt. This is a
very rudimentary converter, a last-resort.
The options are identical to those of the yodl(1) program.
Additionally, the following options are available:
By default the convertors call yodl(1) using the -w flag. The
option --no-warnings suppresses this flag.
By default, the temporary file is written in the /tmp directory.
Specify an alternate directory using --tmp = path-to-alternate-
By default, yodl will use a temporary output file that is
rewritten at each new yodl-invokation. If that’s not what you
want, specify the --unique-output flag, which will use the
process-id as part of the temporary output file. This file is
NOT removed when the yodl-conversion fails.
Each yodl2format converter requires a file format.yo in Yodl’s include
path (e.g., /usr/share/yodl). This file is auto-loaded before FILE (see
the synopsys) is loaded, to make the conversion to format possible.
The output is written to one or more files having the extension
yodl(1), yodlpost(1), yodlmacros(7), yodlmanpage(7)
When the conversion is completed successfully, the converters return 0.
Otherwise a non-zero exit status is returned.
