PREP(1) General Commands Manual PREP(1)NAME
prep - prepare text for statistical processing
prep [ -diop ] file ...
Prep reads each file in sequence and writes it on the standard output, one `word' to a line. A word is a string of alphabetic characters
and imbedded apostrophes, delimited by space or punctuation. Hyphented words are broken apart; hyphens at the end of lines are removed and
the hyphenated parts are joined. Strings of digits are discarded.
The following option letters may appear in any order:
-d Print the word number (in the input stream) with each word.
-i Take the next file as an `ignore' file. These words will not appear in the output. (They will be counted, for purposes of the -d
-o Take the next file as an `only' file. Only these words will appear in the output. (All other words will also be counted for the -d
-p Include punctuation marks (single nonalphanumeric characters) as separate output lines. The punctuation marks are not counted for
the -d count.
Ignore and only files contain words, one per line.

deroff(1) User Commands deroff(1)NAME
deroff - remove nroff/troff, tbl, and eqn constructs
deroff [ -m [m | s | l] ] [-w] [-i] [ filename...]
deroff reads each of the filenames in sequence and removes all troff(1) requests, macro calls, backslash constructs, eqn(1) constructs
(between .EQ and .EN lines, and between delimiters), and tbl(1) descriptions, perhaps replacing them with white space (blanks and blank
lines), and writes the remainder of the file on the standard output. deroff follows chains of included files (.so and .nx troff commands);
if a file has already been included, a .so naming that file is ignored and a .nx naming that file terminates execution. If no input file is
given, deroff reads the standard input.
OPTIONS -m The -m option may be followed by an m, s, or l. The -mm option causes the macros to be interpreted so that only running text is
output (that is, no text from macro lines.) The -ml option forces the -mm option and also causes deletion of lists associated
with the mm macros.
-w If the -w option is given, the output is a word list, one ``word'' per line, with all other characters deleted. Otherwise, the
output follows the original, with the deletions mentioned above. In text, a ``word'' is any string that contains at least two let-
ters and is composed of letters, digits, ampersands (&), and apostrophes ('); in a macro call, however, a ``word'' is a string
that begins with at least two letters and contains a total of at least three letters. Delimiters are any characters other than
letters, digits, apostrophes, and ampersands. Trailing apostrophes and ampersands are removed from ``words.''
-i The -i option causes deroff to ignore .so and .nx commands.
See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

deroff is not a complete troff interpreter, so it can be confused by subtle constructs. Most such errors result in too much rather than too
The -ml option does not handle nested lists correctly.
