TIE(1L)                                                   TIE(1L)

NAME
       tie - merge or apply WEB change files

SYNOPSIS
       tie  -c|-m outputfile masterfile changefile1 [ ... change-
       file9 ]

DESCRIPTION
       The tie program is  used to process multiple change  files
       used  with the WEB system  for  literate  programming. The
       WEB programs  allow  to  apply patches to  a  source  file
       (the  masterfile)  by   means  of a number of change files
       (often only a single change file is allowed).  Tie can  be
       used   to either merge up to nine change files into a sin-
       gle one or to apply the changes to the masterfile in order
       to create a new one. Output of either the  new change file
       or the patched master file goes into outputfile.

   OPTIONS
       -c     Create a single change file from the given  change-
              files.

       -m     Create  a  new  master  file  by applying the given
              changefiles.
