1. NAME

weave - translate WEB to TeX

2. SYNOPSIS

weave [

-x ] webfile[.web] [ changefile[.ch] ]

3. DESCRIPTION

This manual page is not meant to be exhaustive. The complete documentation for this version of \*(TX can be found in the info file or manual "Web2C: A TeX implementation" .

The

weave program is used to create a \*(TX file for viewing a \*(WB program. It takes appropriate care of typographic details like page layout and the use of indentation, italics, boldface, etc., and it supplies extensive cross-index information that it gathers automatically. The command line arguments are the same as for

tangle except for the option:

-x says to omit the index, module name list, and table of contents pages. (A CONTENTS.tex file will still be written when the \*(TX file is processed, however, unless some macros in webmac.tex are redefined.)

The output \*(TX file name is formed by adding .tex to the root of the \*(WB file name.

There are several macros that probably should be redefined by the programmer at the beginning of the \*(WB file. It is a good idea to set \\title to the name of the program. And, to cause output of only changed modules, one can say \\let\\maybe=\\iffalse (usually as the first change in the change file).
