NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       nroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ]
             [ -rcn ] [ -Tname ] [ file... ]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The nroff script emulates the nroff command  using  groff.
       The  -T  option with an argument other than ascii, latin1,
       utf8, or cp1047 will be ignored.  The -h option is equivalent
  to  the grotty -h option.  The -i, -n, -m, -o and -r
       options have the effect described in troff(1).   In  addition
  nroff  silently  ignores  options  of  -e, -q or -s.
       Options -S (safer) and -U (unsafe) are  passed  to  groff.
       -S is passed by default.

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 tmac.tty-char) are also loaded to
       emulate unrepresentable glyphs.
