I'm trying to read and understand the TeX source, but it is difficult to keep track of when I should be reading code from the original file and when I should be reading code from the change file. I would like to merge these files.

So if I have tex.web along with somechanges.ch how can I merge these files together to get just one readable web file?

  • I don't think it's possible. I can only see that the tools tangle and weave take change files as optional arguments, but I don't see the possibility to automatically add a change file to a web file. – topskip May 6 '13 at 14:37

    BTW: do you really want to read the .web file? Not the resulting .tex/.pdf file? – topskip May 6 '13 at 14:38
  • @dıʞsdoʇ, I need the .web file to get the resulting .tex, .pdf file via weave – user1043479 May 7 '13 at 15:47

To answer my own question:

I found a program called tie in CTAN, which you can use to fully merge change files into the original WEB file.

Once you've done this you can use weave to convert to a .tex, .pdf file of the combined code.
