IPEDPG is the preprocessor for Edpage files for the Library system.

It reads each file in the input queue and creates a LIBTXE compatible file in
the output queue.

It reads the queue ONCE unless the -s switch is specified.

Parameter file is EDPAGE in tables/setup and has the syntax :

    ; comment
    pub: (publication)  (combination of desk, section and/or zone)  key: (unique

where :
    desk: (desk or atex text group)
    section: (section name)
    zone: (zone name)
