  • Splice[" infile ", " outfile "] processes text from the file infile, and writes output into outfile.
  • Splice[" file "] takes files with names of the form name .m x and writes output in files with names name . x.
  • Text in the input file not enclosed between <* and *> is copied without change to the output file.
