NAME

mpexpand - Markup processor  

SYNOPSIS

mpexpand ?-module module? format infile|- outfile|-

mpexpand.all ?-verbose? ?module?




 

DESCRIPTION

This manpage describes a processor / converter for manpages in the doctools format as specified in doctools_fmt. The processor is based upon the package doctools.

mpexpand ?-module module? format infile|- outfile|-
The processor takes three arguments, namely the code describing which formatting to generate as the output, the file to read the markup from, and the file to write the generated output into. If the infile is "-" the processor will read from stdin. If outfile is "-" the processor will write to stdout.

If the option -module is present its value overrides the internal definition of the module name.

The currently known output formats are

nroff
The processor generates *roff output, the standard format for unix manpages.
html
The processor generates HTML output, for usage in and display by web browsers.
tmml
The processor generates TMML output, the Tcl Manpage Markup Language, a derivative of XML.
latex
The processor generates LaTeX output.
wiki
The processor generates Wiki markup as understood by wikit.
list
The processor extracts the information provided by manpage_begin.
null
The processor does not generate any output.
mpexpand.all ?-verbose? ?module?
This command uses mpexpand to generate all possible output formats for all manpages in the current directory. The manpages are recognized through the extension ".man". If -verbose is specified the command will list its actions before executing them.

The module information is passed to mpexpand.

 

NOTES

Possible future formats are plain text, pdf and postscript.
