Did you mean -e ? I cannot find any -E option.

I want to be able to redefine the way the prototypes will look like in a
simple way and automatic way as for example be able to add a @strong or
another style macro without touching the examples.

PS: by the way is there a way to shorten the @cindex like for example

@cindex Array
@cindex Array creating from Fortran arrays

so that the concept list will look like something like

Array ...............................  11
      creating from Fortran arrays ..  16
