       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

       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


       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


       yodlstriproff(1),     yodl(1),     yodlbuiltins(7),      yodlletter(7),
       yodlmacros(7), yodlmanpage(7), yodlpost(1), yodlverbinsert(1).
