NAME
weave - translate WEB to TeX

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

DESCRIPTION
This  manual  page  is  not  meant to be exhaustive.  The complete 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  typo-
graphic details like page layout and the use of indentation, italics, 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 table of contents pages.  (A CON-
TENTS.tex file will still 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).
