tc - photoypesetter simulator
tc [ -t ] [ -sN ] [ -pL ] [ file ]
Tc interprets its input (standard input default) as device codes for a Graphic Systems
phototypesetter (cat). The standard output of tc is intended for a Tektronix 4015 (a 4014
terminal with ASCII and APL character sets). The sixteen typesetter sizes are mapped into
the 4014's four sizes; the entire TROFF character set is drawn using the 4014's character
generator, using overstruck combinations where necessary. Typical usage:
troff -t file | tc
At the end of each page tc waits for a newline (empty line) from the keyboard before con-
tinuing on to the next page. In this wait state, the command e will suppress the screen
erase before the next page; sN will cause the next N pages to be skipped; and !line will
send line to the shell.
The command line options are:
-t Don't wait between pages; for directing output into a file.
-sN Skip the first N pages.
-pL Set page length to L. L may include the scale factors p (points), i (inches), c
(centimeters), and P (picas); default is picas.
'-l w' Multiply the default aspect ratio, 1.5, of a displayed page by l/w.
Font distinctions are lost.
tc's character set is limited to ASCII in just one size.
The aspect ratio option is unbelievable.
