NAME
weave - translate WEB to TeX

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

DESCRIPTION
This  manual page is not meant to be exhaustive.  The com-
plete documentation for this version of TeX can  be  found
in the info file or manual Web2C: A TeX implementation.

The weave program is used to create a TeX file for viewing
a Web program.  It takes appropriate care  of  typographic
details like page layout and the use of indentation, ital-
ics, 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
be written when the TeX file is processed, however, unless
some macros in webmac.tex are redefined.)

The output TeX file name is formed by adding .tex  to  the
root of the Web file name.

There are several macros that probably should be redefined
by the programmer at the beginning of the Web 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).
