NAME

       scdoc - document format for writing manual pages

SYNTAX

       Input files must use the UTF-8 encoding.

   PREAMBLE
       Each scdoc file must begin with the following preamble:

           name(section) ["left_footer" ["center_header"]]

       name is the name of the man page you are writing, and section is the section you're
       writing for (see man(1) for information on manual sections).

       left_footer and center_header are optional arguments which set the text positioned at
       those locations in the generated man page, and must be surrounded with double quotes.

   SECTION HEADERS
       Each section of your man page should begin with something similar to the following:

           # HEADER NAME

       Subsection headers are also understood - use two hashes. Each header must have an empty
       line on either side.

   PARAGRAPHS
       Begin a new paragraph with an empty line.

   LINE BREAKS
       Insert a line break by ending a line with ++.

       The result looks
       like this.

   FORMATTING
       Text can be made bold or underlined with asterisks and underscores: *bold* or
       _underlined_. Underscores in the_middle_of_words will be disregarded.

   INDENTATION
       You may indent lines with tab characters (\t) to indent them by 4 spaces in the output.
       Indented lines may not contain headers.

           The result looks something like this.

           You may use multiple lines and most formatting.

       Deindent to return to normal, or indent again to increase your indentation depth.

   LISTS
       You may start bulleted lists with dashes (-), like so:

           - Item 1
           - Item 2
                - Subitem 1
                - Subitem 2
           - Item 3

       The result looks like this:

       ·   Item 1
       ·   Item 2
           ·   Subitem 1
           ·   Subitem 2
       ·   Item 3

       You may also extend long entries onto another line by giving it the same indent level,
       plus two spaces. They will be rendered as a single list entry.

           - Item 1 is pretty long so let's
             break it up onto two lines
           - Item 2 is shorter
                - But its children can go on
                  for a while

       ·   Item 1 is pretty long so let's break it up onto two lines
       ·   Item 2 is shorter
           ·   But its children can go on for a while

   NUMBERED LISTS
       Numbered lists are similar to normal lists, but begin with periods (.) instead of dashes
       (-), like so:

           . Item 1
           . Item 2
           . Item 3,
             with multiple lines

       1.   Item 1
       2.   Item 2
       3.   Item 3, with multiple lines

   TABLES
       To begin a table, add an empty line followed by any number of rows.

       Each line of a table should start with | or : to start a new row or column respectively
       (or space to continue the previous cell on multiple lines), followed by [ or - or ] to
       align the contents to the left, center, or right, followed by a space and the contents of
       that cell.  You may use a space instead of an alignment specifier to inherit the alignment
       of the same column in the previous row.

       The first character of the first row is not limited to | and has special meaning. [ will
       produce a table with borders around each cell. | will produce a table with no borders. ]
       will produce a table with one border around the whole table.

       To conclude your table, add an empty line after the last row.

           [[ *Foo*
           :- _Bar_
           :-
           |  *Row 1*
           :  Hello
           :] world!
           |  *Row 2*
           :  こんにちは
           :  世界
              !

       ┌──────┬────────────┬────────┐
       │FooBar     │        │
       ├──────┼────────────┼────────┤
       │Row 1 │   Hello    │ world! │
       ├──────┼────────────┼────────┤
       │Row 2 │ こんにちは │ 世界 ! │
       └──────┴────────────┴────────┘

   LITERAL TEXT
       You may turn off scdoc formatting and output literal text with escape codes and literal
       blocks. Inserting a \ into your source will cause the subsequent symbol to be treated as a
       literal and copied directly to the output. You may also make blocks of literal syntax like
       so:

           ```
           _This formatting_ will *not* be interpreted by scdoc.
           ```

       These blocks will be indented one level. Note that literal text is shown literally in the
       man viewer - that is, it's not a means for inserting your own roff macros into the output.
       Note that \ is still interpreted within literal blocks, which for example can be useful to
       output ``` inside of a literal block.

   COMMENTS
       Lines beginning with ; and a space are ignored.

CONVENTIONS
