preproc - Man Page

Synopsis

preproc [-h] [--no-break-on-failure] [--debug] [-e <varname>=<value>] [-s PATH] [-C path]

Description

Simple text preprocessor implementing a very basic templating language. You can use {{{ <bash_code> }}} tags in a text file and then pipe content of that file to preproc. preproc will replace each of the tags with stdout of <bash_code> and print the final renderred result to its own stdout. NOTE: You need to trust input files that you pass to preproc. Running preproc on an unknown file is equivalent of running an unknown script on your computer.

Options

--no-break-on-failure

Normally, preproc will immediately stop processing as soon as an error is encountered. This switch changes the behavior.

--debug

Print each encountered tag and its env during input processing.

-e <varname>=<value>, --env <varname>=<value>

set a variable into macro processing environment, e.g. -e VAR=VALUE.

-s PATH, --source PATH

sources given file into macro processing environment. May be used multiple times.

-C path

Directory to operate in.
