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::):
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).
