       el — program to make a tuned shell-command for Oneliner


       el  [-acdfhioxV]  [--command cmd]  [--args n]  [--format fmt]  [--execute]  [--inpipe buf]
       [--outpipe buf]  [--serial]  [--help]  [--version]  [--debug]


       This manual page documents briefly the el command.

       This manual page was written for the Debian distribution because the original program does
       not  have  a manual page.  Instead, it has documentation in the GNU       Info format; see

       el is a program that You can make a tuned shell-command for Oneliner with.   This  command
       can  send  S-exp  to Emacs, and this can make Emacs evaluate it, too.  In other words, you
       can execute Emacs's function from shell-commands.  And you can make Emacs work  in  closer
       cooperation with your favorite shell-commands.


       These  programs  follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.  For  a  complete  description,
       see the Info files.

       -c cmd           --command cmd
                 cmd means a function of Elisp.  Command line arguments and data from stdin means
                 arguments of cmd.  If you specify the only -c switch, el output one S-exp by one
                 line of stdin.

       --a n           --args n
                 Specifies the maximum number of arguments of a Elisp function with -c switch.

       -f fmt           --format fmt
                 Allows you to use format string of printf for making a S-exp.

       -x           --execute
                 Requests to Oneliner to evaluate the S-exp to use *Oneliner auto-eval* buffer.

       -i buf           --inpipe buf
                 Gets input from pipe-buffer. You can specify a number of pipe-buffer, too.

       -o buf           --outpipe buf
                 Puts output to pipe-buffer. You can specify a number of pipe-buffer, too.

       -s           --serial
                 Makes el to serialize multiple lines to one line.

       -h           --help
                 Display help message.

       -V           --version
                 Display version identifiers.

       -d           --debug
                 Enable debugging state.
