NAME

       roff2text - transform roff code into text mode

SYNOPSIS

       roff2text [groffer_option...] [--] [filespec...]
       roff2text -h | --help
       roff2text -v | --version

       The  options  -v  and  --version  print the version information of the program to standard
       output and exit.  The options -h and --help print a usage information of  the  program  to
       standard output and stop the program instantly.

       All  other  options  are  assumed  to  be  groffer options.  They are internally passed to
       groffer.  They override the behavior of the program.  The options are optional,  they  can
       be omitted.

       The  filespec  arguments  correspond  to  the  filespec arguments of groffer.  So they are
       either the names of existing, readable files or - for standard input, or the name of a man
       page  or a groffer(1) man page search pattern.  If no filespec is specified standard input
       is assumed automatically.
