NAME

       yodlverbinsert - Generate verb-sections from parts of a file

SYNOPSIS

       yodlverbinsert [OPTIONS] marker file

DESCRIPTION

       Verbinsert  is  a simple C support program that can be used to generate verb()-sections in
       Yodl files from sections of existing files. The files from which sections are included are
       usually  C  or Cpp source files, accepting either // or /*-style comment. See the EXAMPLES
       section for illustrations.

       Verbinsert offers the possibility to  indent  both  the  initial  verb-statement  and  the
       inserted  file  contents. Furthermore, an additional empty line may be inserted before the
       first line that is actually inserted.

       o      marker
              The argument marker must start in file’s first column en must  either  start  as  a
              standard  C or C++ comment: // or /* must be used. Following that, the remainder of
              the argument is used as a label, e.g., //label, /*LABEL*/. Except for the first two
              characters  and  their  locations  no  special  restrictions  are  imposed upon the
              markers. A labeled section ends at the next //= (when the label started with //) or
              at  the  next  /**/  (when  the  label  started  with  /*).  Like  the markers, the
              end-markers must also start in the file’s first column.

       o      file
              The argument file must be an existing file.

       Verbinsert writes its selected section to its standard output stream.

       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 Yodl’s -L
       (--legacy-include) option is used.

OPTIONS

       The default values of options are listed with each of the options between square brackets.
       The  defaults  were  chosen  so  that  yodlverbinsert  performs the behavior of an earlier
       version of this program, which was not distributed with Yodl.

       o      -N
              Do not write a newline immediately following verb-statement’s open-parenthesis.  By
              default  it  is written, causing an additional line to be inserted before the first
              line that’s actually inserted from a file.

       o      -s spaces [0]
              start each line that is  written  into  the  verb-section  with  spaces  additional
              blanks.

       o      -S spaces [8]
              prefix the verb of the verb-section by spaces additional blanks.

       o      -t tabs [0]
              start  each  line  that  is  written into the verb-section with tabs additional tab
              characters. If both -s and -t are specified, the tabs are inserted first.

       o      -T tabs [0]
              prefix the verb of the verb-section by tabs additional tab characters. If  both  -S
              and -T are specified, the tabs are inserted first.

EXAMPLE

       Assume the file demo contains the following text:

       preceding text

       //one
       one 1

       //=

       /*two*/

           two

       /**/

       trailing text

       Then the following commands write the shown output to the program’s standard output:

       o      verbinclude //one demo
                      verb(
              one 1

              )

       o      verbinclude -N //one demo
                      verb(one 1

              )

       o      verbinclude -s4 ’/*two*/’ demo
                      verb(

                      two

              )
