NAME

       asubst - Area Substitution

SYNOPSIS

       asubst [-o outputfile] [-v] [inputfile]

DESCRIPTION

       The asubst program reads inputfile or from "stdin" and performs the
       following action: Characters and substrings are substituted according
       to Perl-like substitution commands enclosed by surrounding area
       delimiters.  The substitution commands recognized are

          [[s/pattern/string/options]]
          [[tr/input/output/options]]

       and the areas are defined by blocks delimited via

         {: ... :}

EXAMPLE

         {: [[s/ae/ä/]] [[s/ue/ü/]]
         Foo Bar Baz Quux with Umlauts ae and ue
         :}

OPTIONS

           send to "stdout" if no such option is specified or outputfile is
           ""-"".

       -v  This sets verbose mode where some processing information will be
           given on the console.
