       This manual page documents briefly the el command.

       This  manual  page  was written for the Debian distribution because the
       original program  does  not  have  a  manual  page.   Instead,  it  has
       documentation in the GNU       Info format; see below.

       el  is  a  program that You can make a tuned shell-command for Oneliner
       with.  This command can send S-exp to Emacs, and this  can  make  Emacs
       evaluate  it,  too.   In  other words, you can execute Emacs’s function
       from shell-commands.  And you can make Emacs work in closer cooperation
       with your favorite shell-commands.


       These  programs  follow  the  usual  GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  is
       included below.  For a complete description, see the Info files.

       -c cmd           --command cmd
                 cmd  means  a  function of Elisp.  Command line arguments and
                 data from stdin means arguments of cmd.  If you  specify  the
                 only -c switch, el output one S-exp by one line of stdin.

       --a n           --args n
                 Specifies the maximum number of arguments of a Elisp function
                 with -c switch.

       -f fmt           --format fmt
                 Allows you to use format string of printf for making a S-exp.

       -x           --execute
                 Requests  to  Oneliner to evaluate the S-exp to use *Oneliner
                 auto-eval* buffer.

       -i buf           --inpipe buf
                 Gets input from pipe-buffer. You  can  specify  a  number  of
                 pipe-buffer, too.

       -o buf           --outpipe buf
                 Puts output to pipe-buffer. You can specify a number of pipe-
                 buffer, too.

       -s           --serial
                 Makes el to serialize multiple lines to one line.

       -h           --help
                 Display help message.

       -V           --version
                 Display version identifiers.

       -d           --debug
                 Enable debugging state.


       The programs are documented  fully  by  Oneliner(Shell-mode  hooks  for
       Oneliners)       available via the Info system.
