File: web2c.info, Node: weave invocation, Next: pooltype invocation, Prev: tangle invocation, Up: WEB 8.2 Weave: Translate WEB to TeX =============================== Weave creates a TeX document from a WEB source file (*note WEB::), assuming various macros defined in `webmac.tex'. It takes care of typographic details such as page layout, indentation, and italicizing identifiers. It also automatically gathers and outputs extensive cross-reference information. Synopsis: weave [OPTION]... WEBFILE[.web] [CHANGEFILE[.ch]] The output is to the basename of WEBFILE extended with `.tex'; for example, `weave /wherever/foo.web' creates `./foo.tex'. Weave applies CHANGEFILE to WEBFILE before writing the output; by default, there is no change file. The program accepts the following option, as well as the standard `-verbose', `-help' and `-version' (*note Common options::): `-x' Omit the cross-reference information: the index, the list of WEB module names, and the table of contents (an empty `CONTENTS.tex' file will still be written when the Weave output file is processed by TeX using the default `webmac.tex', though). Conventionally, WEB programmers should define the TeX `\title' macro at the beginning of the source file. Also, to get output of only changed modules, one can say `\let\maybe=\iffalse' (usually as the first change in the change file).
