NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       orig_me - macros for formatting papers

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       nroff -orig_me [ options ] file ...
       troff -orig_me [ options ] file ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       This  package  of  nroff  and troff macro definitions provides a canned
       formatting facility for technical papers in various formats.  When producing
 2-column output on a terminal, filter the output through col(1).

       The macro requests are defined below.  Many nroff  and  troff  requests
       are  unsafe  in	conjunction with this package, however, these requests
       may be used with impunity after the first .pp:

	      .bp     begin new page
	      .br     break output line here
	      .sp n   insert n spacing lines
	      .ls n   (line spacing) n=1 single, n=2 double space
	      .na     no alignment of right margin
	      .ce n   center next n lines
	      .ul n   underline next n lines
	      .sz +n  add n to point size

       Output of the eqn, neqn, refer, and tbl(1) preprocessors for  equations
       and tables is acceptable as input.
