@exdent: Undoing a Line's Indentation
@exdent command removes any indentation a line might have.
The command is written at the beginning of a line and applies only to
the text that follows the command that is on the same line. Do not use
braces around the text. In a printed manual, the text on an
@exdent line is printed in the roman font.
@exdent is usually used within examples. Thus,
@example This line follows an @@example command. @exdent This line is exdented. This line follows the exdented line. The @@end example comes on the next line. @end group
This line follows an @example command. This line is exdented. This line follows the exdented line. The @end example comes on the next line.
In practice, the
@exdent command is rarely used.
Usually, you un-indent text by ending the example and
returning the page to its normal width.
