       empy -  A powerful and robust templating system for Python


       empy [options] [<filename, or  ’-’ for stdin>  [<argument>]]


       This manual page documents briefly the empy command.

       EmPy  is  a  system  for embedding Python expressions and statements in
       template text; it takes an EmPy source file, processes it, and produces
       output.  This is accomplished via expansions, which are special signals
       to the EmPy system and are set off by a special prefix (by default  the
       at sign, @).

       EmPy  can  expand  arbitrary  Python expressions and statements in this
       way, as well as a variety of special forms. Textual data not explicitly
       delimited in this way is sent unaffected to the output, allowing Python
       to be used in effect as a markup language. Also supported are callbacks
       via   hooks,  recording  and  playback  via  diversions,  and  dynamic,
       chainable filters. The system is highly configurable via  command  line
       options and embedded 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.

       -v, --version
