tie - merge or apply WEB change files
tie -c|-m outputfile masterfile changefile...
The tie program is used to process multiple change files used with the
WEB system for literate programming. The WEB programs allow to apply patches
to a source file (the masterfile) by means of a number of change files
(often only a single change file is allowed). Tie 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 one. Output of either the new
change file or the patched master file goes into outputfile.
The environment variable WEBINPUTS is used to search for the input files, or the
system default if WEBINPUTS is not set. See tex(1) for the details of
