       mom  is  a  macro  set  for  groff,  designed  primarily  to  format documents for PDF and
       PostScript output.

       mom provides two categories of macros: macros for typesetting,  and  macros  for  document
       processing.   The typesetting macros provide access to groff's typesetting capabilities in
       ways that are simpler to master than groff's primitives.  The document  processing  macros
       provide  highly  customizable  markup  tags  that  allow  the  user  to  design and output
       professional-looking documents with a minimum of typesetting intervention.

       Files processed with pdfmom (man(1) pdfmom), with or without the -Tps option, produce  PDF
       documents.   The  documents  include a PDF outline that appears in the ‘Contents’ panel of
       document viewers, and may contain clickable internal and external links.

       When -Tps is absent, groff's native PDF driver, gropdf, is used to  generate  the  output.
       When  given, the output is still PDF, but processing is passed over to pdfroff, which uses
       groff's PostScript driver, grops.  Not all PDF features are available when -Tps is  given;
       its primary use is to allow processing of files with embedded PostScript images.

       Files processed with groff -mom (or -m mom ) produce PostScript output by default.

       mom comes with her own very complete documentation in HTML format.  A separate PDF manual,
       Producing PDFs with groff and mom, covers full mom/PDF usage.
