Solaris 2.0 only.
Generate a permuted index from
infile and send output to
(Standard input and output are the defaults.)
To print the index, format the output file using the
-mptx option to nroff or troff.
In addition to using tab, space, and newline, use the characters in
file as word separators.
Fold uppercase and lowercase; i.e., ignore case when sorting keywords.
Set column gaps in output to
Ignore keywords listed in
file is /usr/lib/eign.
Use only the words in
file as keywords (inverse of -i).
Use the first field of
infile as a reference ID. This field
does not get permuted but appears as the last field of the output.
Prepare output for phototypesetting (default line length is 100 characters).
Produce output lines
n characters wide (default is 72).
Given a three-line input file ptx.in:
ar(1) ar: archive and library maintainer at(1) at: execute commands at a later time awk(1) awk: pattern scanning language
A permuted index could be generated as follows:
ptx -f -i ignore -w 80 -r ptx.in > ptx.out
In this case, ptx merges uppercase and lowercase (-f) ignores a list of keywords (-i), uses 80-character output lines (-w), and appends the first word (the command name) as a section reference (-r).
