SYNOPSIS

asubst [-o outputfile] [-v] [inputfile]

DESCRIPTION

The asubst program reads inputfile or from "stdin" and performs the following action: Characters and substrings are substituted according to Perl-like substitution commands enclosed by surrounding area delimiters. The substitution commands recognized are

   [[s/pattern/string/options]]
   [[tr/input/output/options]]

and the areas are defined by blocks delimited via

  {: ... :}

  Foo Bar Baz Quux with Umlauts X and X
  :}

-v
This sets verbose mode where some processing information will be given on the console.
