NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       nroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -p ] [ -rcn ]
	     [ -t ] [ -S ] [ -Tname ] [ -U ] [ -v ] [ file... ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The nroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.   Only	ascii,
       ascii8, latin1, utf8, nippon, and cp1047 are valid arguments for the -T
       option.	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 option is equivalent to the grotty's -h option (i.e., using tabs
       in the output).	The -i, -n, -m, -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.  -S is
       passed by default.  -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.
