DESCRIPTION

       sgml2txt is an old and obsoleted form of the text converter command of LinuxDoc-Tools.  It
       is recommended to switch the new form linuxdoc -B text now.  It converts  a  LinuxDoc  DTD
       SGML  source  file  to ASCII, ISO-8859-1, or EUC-JP output. Output will appear in file.txt
       where file is the name of the SGML source file.

       The attribute/value pair "output=txt" is set for conditionals.

       sgml2txt accepts all the generic options  described  in  linuxdoc(1),  and  the  following
       specific options:

       --filter, -f
              Remove backspace-overstrikes from the intermediate form generated by groff(1).

       --pass, -P
              The  argument  of  the  pass  option is added to the command-line options handed to
              groff(1).

       --blanks=n, -b
