NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       deroff - Deletes neqn, nroff, and tbl constructs

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       deroff  [-i   |  -l]  [-kpuw]  [-ma   | -me  | -mm  | -ms]

       deroff [-i  | -l] [-kpuw] -mm  -ml  file...

       The deroff command reads the specified files (or  standard
       input  by  default),  removes  all  nroff  requests, macro
       calls, backslash constructs, eqn constructs  (between  and
       lines  and  between  delimiters),  and  tbl  descriptions,
       replacing many of them with spaces  or  blank  lines,  and
       writes the remainder of the file to standard output.

OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Suppresses  processing  of  included  files (.so and Keeps
       blocks of text specified by requests or macros; for  example,
 the request.  Suppresses processing of included files
       whose names begin with /usr/lib (such as  macro  files  in
       /usr/lib/tmac).   Interprets  man macros only.  Interprets
       me macros only.  Ignores mm macros  and  deletes  mm  list
       structures.  The  -mm  option  must be specified with this
       option.  Interprets ms and mm macros only.  Interprets  ms
       macros   only.   Performs  special  paragraph  processing.
       Removes _\b and \b  in  underlined  and  boldfaced  words.
       Automatically  sets  the -w option.  Formats output into a
       word list, containing one word per line,  with  all  other
       characters deleted.

       In  text,  a word is any string that contains at least two
       letters and is composed  of  letters,  digits,  ampersands
       (&),  and  apostrophes  (').  In a macro call, a word is a
       string that begins with at least two letters and  contains
       a  total  of  at  least three letters.  Delimiters are any
       characters other than  letters,  digits,  ampersands,  and

       Trailing  ampersands  and  apostrophes  are  removed  from

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The deroff command normally  follows  chains  of  included
       files  (.so and requests) and processes those files.  If a
       file was already included, a naming it is ignored and a
