Summary 0001730: m4 synopsis does not show file operand as optional
Description The m4 synopsis is:
m4 [-s] [-D name[=val]]... [-U name]... file...
with no square brackets around "file..." that would indicate it is optional.

However, the description of the file operand and the STDIN section both state that if no file operand is given, the standard input is used.
