NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       nroff [ -CchipStUv ] [ -dcs ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -rcn ]
	     [ -Tname ] [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The nroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.   Only	ascii,
       latin1, koi8-r, utf8, and cp1047 are valid arguments for the -T option,
       selecting the output encoding emitted by  grotty,  groff's  TTY	output
       device.	 If an invalid or no -T option is given, nroff checks the current
 locale to select a default output  device.	 It  first  tries  the
       locale  program,  then  the environment variables LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and
       LANG, and finally the LESSCHARSET environment variable.

       The -h and -c options are equivalent to grotty's options -h (using tabs
       in  the	output)  and  -c  (using  the old output scheme instead of SGR
       escape sequences).  The -d, -C, -i, -m, -n, -o, and -r options have the
       effect  described in troff(1).  In addition, nroff silently ignores the
       options -e, -q, and -s (which are not implemented in  troff).   Options
       -p  (pic),  -t  (tbl), -S (safer), and -U (unsafe) are passed to groff.
       -v shows the version number.

ENVIRONMENT    [Toc]    [Back]

	      A colon separated list of directories in which to search for the
	      groff executable before searching in PATH.  If unset, `/usr/bin'
	      is used.

NOTES    [Toc]    [Back]

       This shell script is basically intended for use with man(1),  so  warnings
  are  suppressed.	nroff-style character definitions (in the file
       tty-char.tmac) are also loaded to emulate unrepresentable glyphs.
