       This  manual  page  documents briefly the cheetah command-line tool.  This manual page was
       written for the Debian distribution because the original program does not  have  a  manual

       cheetah  is  a  Python-powered  template  engine  and  code generator. It can be used as a
       standalone utility or it can be combined with other  tools.  Cheetah  has  many  potential
       uses,  but  web  developers  looking for a viable alternative to ASP, JSP, PHP and PSP are
       expected to be its principle user group.

       The cheetah command-line tool is the standalone utility portion  of  the  software  suite.
       cheetah-compile  is  a  convenience script that for the "cheetah compile ..." command. The
       utility accepts a single command possible options and a list  of  files.   If  FILE  is  a
       single "-", read standard input and write standard output.


       The  possible  cheetah  commands  are  listed below. You may abbreviate the command to the
       first letter; e.g., 'h' == 'help'.
