       grog - guess options for groff command


       grog [ -option ... ] [ files ... ]


       grog  reads  files  and guesses which of the groff(1) options -e, -man,
       -me, -mm, -mom, -ms, -mdoc, -mdoc-old, -p, -R, -g, -G, -s, and  -t  are
       required  for  printing  files,  and prints the groff command including
       those options on the standard output.  A filename  of  -  is  taken  to
       refer  to  the  standard input.  If no files are specified the standard
       input will be read.  Any specified options  will  be  included  in  the
       printed  command.   No  space  is  allowed  between  options  and their
       arguments.  The only options recognized are -C (which  is  also  passed
       on) to enable compatibility mode, and -v to print the version number.

       For example,

              ‘grog -Tdvi‘

       will  guess  the  appropriate command to print and then run it
       after adding the -Tdvi option.
