This is the README file of the `CTIE' distribution, version 1.1 --------------------------------------------------------------- CTIE is based on the `TIE' program, a program which was first developed to allow WEB programmers to use more than one change file with their WEB programs. CWEB introduced a new command, @i, to handle "include files". The original TIE program was not designed to handle this situation, and so could not be used for all CWEB programs. CTIE behaves essentially identically to the original TIE, and identical results will be generated when TIE is applied to traditional WEB files with changes, as long as there are no errors. (Errors may lead to different output, but then the errors need correcting, anyway.) CTIE can be used to either create a new version of the (C)WEB file which incorporates the changes, or to merge multiple change files into a single change file. This program does not depend in an essential way on any special WEB dialect, nor on using WEB at all, as the only controls to be interpreted are the change requests in the change files (delimited by @x, @y and @z) and file include commands (indicated by @i). This makes `CTIE' also usable for any other language, or even data files. See the documentation ctiedoc.tex and the example file ctie.tie for more information. REQUIREMENTS: This version of `CTIE' is written in CWEB. To preprocess and compile the source you will need a working `ctangle'. A pretangled ctie.c is supplied if you do not have a working ctangle available. Please note, that the CWEB by Silvio Levy and Donald E. Knuth must probably be at least at version 2.8, to process and compile `ctie' without problems. Furthermore, a ctie-k.ch file is provided which links ctie against Karl Berry's kpathsea library. A tangled version of this file is provided as ctie-k.c. To use this, you will need to link against version 3.4.5 or higher of the kpathsea library. This version searches for files, both from the command line and included (@i) files using the CWEBINPUTS search path.
