|Determines the output format which can be one of the following:|
|ascii||Generates a single output file with the extension .ascii suitable for viewing on an ASCII terminal.|
|html||Generates a set of linked HTML files suitable for use with an HTML browser. A top level file, file.html, contains the title, author, date, abstract and brief table of contents for the document. A file file_toc.html contains a complete table of contents. A series of files named file1.html, file2.html ... filen.html contain the actual text of the document.|
|Generates a single output file with the extension .koi8-r suitable for viewing on an terminal supporting the KOI8-R character encoding.|
|latex||Generates a single output file with the extension .latex suitable for processing with LaTeX.|
|Generates a single output file with the extension .latin1 suitable for viewing on an terminal supporting the ISO8859-1 character encoding.|
|ps||Generates a single output file with the extension .ps suitable for printing or display on a PostScript compatible device.|
|roff||Generates a single output file with the extension .roff suitable processing with groff(1). This is actually an intermediate conversion used by the -f ascii, -f latin1, -f koi8-r, and -f ps format options.|
|When used with the -f html output format, this specifies the document encoding recorded in the <HEAD> element of the generated HTML files. The default is iso-8859-1.|
<!ENTITY % name INCLUDE >
occurs at the start of the document type declaration subset in the document entity. Since repeated definitions of an entity are ignored, this definition will take precedence over any other definitions of this entity in the document type declaration. Multiple -i options are allowed. If the declaration replaces the reserved name INCLUDE then the new reserved name will be the replacement text of the entity. Typically the document type declaration will contain
<!ENTITY % name IGNORE >
and will use %name; in the status keyword specification of a marked section declaration. In this case the effect of the option will be to cause the marked section not to be ignored.
|When used with the -f html option, this option generates a shell script named file.ln. For each <label id= foo > in the document source, file.ln generates a symbolic link foo.html pointing to the numbered .html file containing the reference. Since the number of the file containing a particular section can change when a document is modified, this provides a convenient hook by which separate documents can provide links into another document without the links becoming invalid when the target document is modified. When creating a symbolic link, any occurrence of a slash (/) in label is replaced with percent (%), while any occurrence of a space is replaced with an underscore (_).|
|When used with the -f html option, the contents of the specified files will be inserted into the generated HTML files at the top ( -hdr ) and bottom ( -ftr ) of the page.|
If the input file name ends with .sgml, the extension may be omitted on the command line. In all cases, the output files are created in the current working directory.
/usr/local/share/sgml/transpec - directory containing translation specification files for instant(1).
