NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       checknr - Checks nroff files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       checknr [-fs] [-a.x1.y1.x2.y2 ... .xn.yn] [-c.x1.x2.x3 ...
       .xn] [file...]

       The checknr command checks a list of nroff input files for
       certain  kinds  of errors involving mismatched opening and
       closing delimiters and unknown commands.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Adds pairs of macros to the list.   This  option  must  be
       followed  by groups of six characters, each group defining
       a pair of macros. The six characters  are  a  period,  the
       first  macro  name,  another  period, and the second macro
       name. For example, to define a pair  and  -a.BS.ES.   (You
       cannot  use  the  -a  option to define a 1-character macro
       name.)   Defines  otherwise  undefined  commands.   Causes
       checknr  to  ignore  \f  font  changes.  Causes checknr to
       ignore \s size changes.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       If no files are specified,  checknr  checks  the  standard
       input.   Delimiters  checked  are as follows: Font changes
       using \fx ...  \fP.  Size  changes  using  \sx  ...   \s0.
       Macros that come in open/close forms (for example, the and
       macros), which must always come in pairs.

       The checknr command can handle both the ms  and  me  macro

       The  checknr  command  is intended to be used on documents
       that are prepared with checknr in mind, much the  same  as
       lint.  It  expects a certain document writing style for \f
       and \s commands, in that each \fx must be terminated  with
       \fP  and  each  \sx  must be terminated with \s0. While it
       will work to go directly into the next font or  explicitly
       specify the original font or point size, and many existing
       documents actually do this, such a practice produces error
       messages from checknr.

       The  checknr command does not recognize certain reasonable
       constructs, such as conditionals.
