troff, nroff, dpost – text formatting and typesetting|
troff [ option ... ] [ file ... ]
Troff formats text in the named files for printing on a typesetter,
emitting a textual intermediate format called `typesetter–independent
troff output', understood by programs such as proof(1) and lp(1),
but also by a troff post–processor named dpost, which emits corresponding
Postscript. Under –f, dpost also emits
Postscript font definitions as needed. Nroff does the same as
troff, but produces output suitable for typewriter–like devices,
usually without further post–processing, but see col(1).
–olist Print pages in the comma–separated list of numbers and ranges. A range N–M means N through M; initial –M means up to M; final N– means from N to the end.
–nN Number first generated page N.
–mnameProcess the macro file /sys/lib/tmac/tmac.name before the input files.
–raN Set register a (one character name) to N.
–i Read standard input after the input files are exhausted.
–q Invoke the simultaneous input–output mode of the rd request.
–N Produce output suitable for typewriter–like devices.
Typesetter devices (not –N) only
Typewriter (–N) output only
