       hlins - insert url’s into html documents


       hlins [options] [infile]


       hlins  is  a  program that inserts hypertext links into html documents,
       according to one or several data bases associating addresses (url’s) to
       names.  hlins  is  designed  for  inserting links for persons: It knows
       about abbreviations of first and middle names and tolerated dropping of
       the last part of a composite last name.

       If  no  file  argument is given then input is taken from stdin; when no
       output option (see below) is given then output goes to stdout.

       For a complete description, see the documention in html format.
