yodlverbinsert - Generate verb-sections from parts of a file
yodlverbinsert [OPTIONS] marker file
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
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.
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.
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.
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 
start each line that is written into the verb-section with
spaces additional blanks.
o -S spaces 
prefix the verb of the verb-section by spaces additional blanks.
o -t tabs 
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 
prefix the verb of the verb-section by tabs additional tab
characters. If both -S and -T are specified, the tabs are
