deroff - remove nroff, troff, tbl and eqn constructs
/usr/bin/deroff [ -w ] filename <b>...
The deroff command reads each file in sequence and removes all nroff and
troff command lines, backslash constructions, macro definitions, eqn
constructs (between .EQ and .EN lines or between delimiters), and table
descriptions and writes the remainder on the standard output. deroff
follows chains of included files (.so and .nx commands); if a file has
already been included, a .so is ignored and a .nx terminates execution.
If no input file is given, deroff reads from the standard input file.
-w Generate a word list, one word per line. A `word' is a string of
letters, digits, and apostrophes, beginning with a letter;
apostrophes are removed. All other characters are ignored.
eqn(1), nroff(1), tbl(1), troff(1)
deroff is not a complete troff interpreter, so it can be confused by
subtle constructs. Most errors result in too much rather than too little
deroff does not work well with files that use .so to source in the
standard macro package files.
