tmexpand [ --version] [ -g] [ -Iinclude-dir -Iinclude-dir ...] [ input-file|-] [ output-file|-]


tmexpand is a simple jed-script program for expanding a text-macro file. Both the S-Lang and jed documentation, as well as the web pages are written in text-macro format.

Included in the tmexpand distribution are macros for the creation of style HTML pages, macros for producing linuxdoc and docbook SGML files, and macros for expanding S-Lang function text-macro documentation to the S-Lang help file format.
