       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:

       .so <filename>

       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.


       -C, --compatible
              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.

       -h, --help
              Print a help message and exit.

       -V, --version
              Display version information.
