help2man - generate a simple manual page
help2man [OPTION]... EXECUTABLE
`help2man' generates a man page out of `--help' and `--version' output.
description for the NAME paragraph
section number for manual page (1, 6, 8)
name of manual (User Commands, ...)
source of program (FSF, Debian, ...)
select locale (default "C")
include material from `FILE'
include material from `FILE' if it exists
send output to `FILE'
name of Texinfo manual
suppress pointer to Texinfo manual
exclude the `lt-' from the program name
--help print this help, then exit
print version number, then exit
EXECUTABLE should accept `--help' and `--version' options and produce output on stdout
although alternatives may be specified using:
help option string
version option string
include stderr when parsing option output
Additional material may be included in the generated output with the --include and
--opt-include options. The format is simple:
Blocks of verbatim *roff text are inserted into the output either at the start of the
given [section] (case insensitive), or after a paragraph matching /pattern/.
Patterns use the Perl regular expression syntax and may be followed by the i, s or m
modifiers (see perlre(1)).
Lines before the first section or pattern which begin with `-' are processed as options.
Anything else is silently ignored and may be used for comments, RCS keywords and the like.
The section output order (for those included) is:
Any [NAME] or [SYNOPSIS] sections appearing in the include file will replace what would
have automatically been produced (although you can still override the former with --name
Other sections are prepended to the automatically produced output for the standard
sections given above, or included at other (above) in the order they were encountered in
the include file.
Placement of the text within the section may be explicitly requested by using the syntax
[<section], [=section] or [>section] to place the additional text before, in place of, or
after the default output respectively.
