5.19. inline Filter


The general syntax is:

  !block inline[; parameters]

The parameters are:

Name Type Rule
target string <\w+>
expand boolean  

See Understanding Filter Interfaces, if necessary.


The inline filter is used to pass a section of text directly to a target documentation system.

The target parameter is used to specify which target system the nominated text is to be passed to. The default target is html.

The expand parameter can be used to request expansion of SDF expressions (enclosed in [[ and ]]) within the text.


To embed HTML within an SDF document:

!block inline
  add arbitrary HTML here ...

SDF expressions can be expand like this:

!define VERB "is"
!block inline; expand
This HTML [[VERB]] expanded.
