+.SH NAME
+manifake \- creates a MANIFEST.new out of a MANIFEST file
+.SH SYNOPSIS
+.B manifake
+.SH DESCRIPTION
+.I Manifake
+is a real simpleminded program that takes a MANIFEST file, such as one
+produced by a shar program, and creates a MANIFEST.new file ready to be
+used by all the dist programs. What it does is that all archive numbers
+are removed and the optional leading comments up to a dashed-line are
+thrown away.
+.PP
+.I Manifake
+will typically be used when converting an existing package
+to use \fImetaconfig\fR or any other dist utility.
