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.

starting with two dashes (‘--’).
