       groff_me - troff macros for formatting papers


       groff -me [ options ] file ...
       groff -m me [ options ] file ...


       This  manual  page describes the GNU version of the -me macros, which is part of the groff
       document formatting system.  This version can be used with both GNU troff and Unix  troff.
       This  package  of  troff  macro  definitions  provides  a  canned  formatting facility for
       technical papers in various formats.

       The macro requests are defined below.  Many troff requests are unsafe in conjunction  with
       this package, however, these requests may be used with impunity after the first .pp:

       .bp     begin new page
       .br     break output line here
       .sp n   insert n spacing lines
       .ls n   (line spacing) n=1 single, n=2 double space
       .na     no alignment of right margin
       .ce n
       .ul n   underline next n lines

       Output of the pic, eqn, refer, and tbl preprocessors is acceptable as input.
