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
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.
