       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 are:

       o      yodl2html(1): converts to HTML, writes a file with the extension .html.

       o      yodl2man(1): converts to nroff `man’ format, writes .man. Can be further  processed
              with e.g. nroff -Tascii -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.

       NOTE:  Starting  with  Yodl  version  3.00.0  Yodl’s  default  file inclusion behavior has
       changed. The current working directory no longer remains fixed at the directory  in  which
       Yodl  is  called,  but  is  volatile,  changing  to  the directory in which a yodl-file is
       located. This has the advantage that Yodl’s file inclusion behavior now  matches  the  way
       C’s  #include  directive  operates; it has the disadvantage that it may break some current
       documents. Conversion, however  is  simple  but  can  be  avoided  altogether  if  the  -L
       (--legacy-include) option is used (see below).


       The options are identical to those of the yodl(1) program.

       Additionally, the following options are available:

       o      --no-warnings:
              By  default the convertors call yodl(1) using the -w flag. The option --no-warnings
              suppresses this flag.

       o      --intermediate=<filename>:
              By default, files used for the communication between yodl and yodlpost are  removed
              following  the  conversion. The --intermediate=<filename> option may be provided to
              retain these files, called <filename> and <filename>.idx.


       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 .format.
