nroff - emulate nroff command with groff
nroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -p ] [ -rcn ]
[ -t ] [ -S ] [ -Tname ] [ -U ] [ -v ] [ file... ]
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.
A colon separated list of directories in which to search for the
groff executable before searching in PATH. If unset, `/usr/bin'
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.
