extract_usage_from_stx - extract "Usage:" messages from manpages written in Stx


extract_usage_from_stx [ file file ... ]


Process the given files, which should be manpages written in Stx, stripping away everything that is typically not included in a "Usage:" message. If no files are given, read standard input instead.

A "Usage:" message is a message typically printed when a program is called with incorrect arguments or when help is specifically requested, for example with a --help command line option. A "Usage:" message is typically a subset of the information provided on a command's manual page.

The information left in the "Usage:" message by extract_usage_from_stx includes:

the command synopsis, as given in the "SYNOPSIS" section
the command line options, as given in the "OPTIONS" section, together with the first sentence of their description. A sentence is taken to end at a period (.).

The output of extract_usage_from_stx is still in Stx format, which you might want to further process to produce the actual "Usage:" message.


--version, -V
Just show version information and exit.
--help, -?
Just show a short help message and exit.

The end-condition of a sentence is too strong.

nomade Larmor pagailles
l'os de l'araigne rampa mol
alors il pâma régal démon

dame oral mer on gaspilla
nomade gaspillera moral
parler logis nomade a mal

or ma smala plonge là dire
la nage l'immoral rapsode
allegro le piano ramdams

dire la maman oral gospel
là nagea remords malpoli
là elle programma Adonis

adora lampions margelle
orna malgré la psalmodie
la maison de Larmor Plage
