zsoelim - satisfy .so requests in roff input
zsoelim [-CVh] [file ...]
zsoelim parses file arguments, or if none are specified, its standard
input for lines of the form:
These requests are replaced by the contents of the filename specified.
If the request cannot be met, zsoelim looks for filename.ext where .ext
can be one of .gz, .Z or .z. Other extension types may be supported
depending upon compile time options. If the request can be met by a
compressed file, this file is decompressed using an appropriate
decompressor and its output is used to satisfy the request.
Traditionally, soelim programs were used to allow roff preprocessors to
be able to preprocess the files referred to by the requests. This
particular version was written to circumvent problems created by
support for compressed manual pages.
This flag is available for compatibility with other soelim
programs. Its use is to enable .so requests followed by
something other than whitespace. As this is already the default
behaviour, it is ignored.
