NAME

yodlmanpage - Yodl's `manpage' document type

SYNOPSIS

The manpage document type was specifically implemented to write Unix-style manual pages. Other Yodl document formats, such as article, report and book are documented in the Yodl guide and in the manpage for yodlmacros.

DESCRIPTION

This manual page briefly describes the manpage document type of the Yodl document language. This document type is specific enough that it warrants a separate manpage.

Yodl mapage documents can be converted to groff documents (using yodl2man), to html documents (using yodl2html), or to plain ascii text documents (using yodl2txt).

manpage documents do not use the `standard' sectioning commands (e.g., sect() and subsect()), but have specific manpage...() macros. You can however use (and are encouraged to..) other `normal' macros, such as description(...) or itemization(...) for lists, or bf() for boldface and em() for emphasis. As for fonts, the following is suggested:

Each manpage document in Yodl must be organized as follows:
