The ctie program is used to process multiple change files used with the CWEB system for literate programming. The CWEB programs allow one to apply patches to a source file (the masterfile) by means of a single change file. ctie can be used to either merge up to 32 change files into a single one or to apply the changes to the masterfile in order to create a new master file. Output of either the new change file or the patched master file goes into outputfile. Any include files (indicated using the CWEB @i command) are fully expanded during ctie processing, which means that the change files are able to modify the contents of any included files.



Create a single change file from the given changefiles.


Create a new master file by applying the given changefiles.


The environment variable CWEBINPUTS is used to search for the input files, or the system default if CWEBINPUTS is not set. See tex(1) for the details of the searching.
