       troff, nroff - text formatting and typesetting


       troff [ option ...  ] [ file ...  ]

       nroff [ option ...  ] [ file ...  ]


       Troff  formats text in the named files for printing on a typesetter.  Nroff does the same,
       but produces output suitable for typewriter-like devices.

       If no file argument is present, the standard input is read.  An argument consisting  of  a
       single  minus  (-)  is  taken  to be a file name corresponding to the standard input.  The
       options are:

       -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.

       -mname  Process  the  macro  file  /usr/share/9base/troff/tmac/  before the input

       -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
       -a      Send a printable textual approximation of the results to the standard output.

       -Tdest  Prepare output for typesetter dest:
               -Tutf    (The default.) PostScript printers with preprocessing to  handle  Unicode
                        characters encoded in UTF
               -Tpost   Regular PostScript printers
               -T202    Mergenthaler Linotron 202

       -Fdir  Take font information from directory dir.

   Typewriter (-N) output only
       -sN     Halt prior to every N pages (default N=1) to allow paper loading or changing.

       -Tname  Prepare  output  for  specified  terminal.  Known names include utf for the normal
               Plan 9 UTF encoding of the Unicode Standard character set (default),  37  for  the
               Teletype  model  37,  lp  (`line-printer')  for  any  terminal  without  half-line
               capability, 450 for the DASI-450 (Diablo Hyterm), and think (HP ThinkJet).

       -e      Produce equally-spaced words in adjusted lines, using full terminal resolution.

       -h      Use output tabs during horizontal  spacing  to  speed  output  and  reduce  output
               character count.  Tab settings are assumed to be every 8 nominal character widths.
