NAME
me - macros for formatting papers
SYNOPSIS
nroff -me [ options ] file ... troff -me [ options ] file ...
DESCRIPTION
This package of nroff and troff macro definitions provides a canned formatting facility for technical papers in various formats. When producing 2-column output on a terminal, filter the output through col(1). The macro requests are defined below. Many nroff and troff requests are unsafe in conjunction with this pack- age, 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 center next n lines .ul n underline next n lines .sz +n add n to point size Output of the eqn, neqn, refer, and tbl(1) preprocessors for equations and tables is acceptable as input.

REQUESTS
In the following list, "initialization" refers to the first .pp, .lp, .ip, .np, .sh, or .uh macro. This list is incomplete; see The -me Reference Manual for interesting details. Request Initial Cause Explanation Value Break .(c - yes Begin centered block .(d - no Begin delayed text .(f - no Begin footnote .(l - yes Begin list .(q - yes Begin major quote .(x x - no Begin indexed item in index x .(z - no Begin floating keep .)c - yes End centered block .)d - yes End delayed text .)f - yes End footnote .)l - yes End list .)q - yes End major quote .)x - yes End index item .)z - yes End floating keep .++ m H - no Define paper section. m defines the part of the paper, and can be C (chapter), A (appen- dix), P (preliminary, e.g., abstract, table of contents, etc.), B (bibliography), RC (chapters renumbered from page one each chapter), or RA (appendix renumbered from page one). .+c T - yes Begin chapter (or appendix, etc., as set by .++). T is the chapter title. .1c 1 yes One column format on a new page. .2c 1 yes Two column format. .EN - yes Space after equation produced by eqn or neqn. .EQ x y - yes Precede equation; break out and add space. Equation number is y. The optional argument x may be I to indent equation (default), L to left-adjust the equation, or C to center the equation. .GE - yes End gremlin picture. .GS - yes Begin gremlin picture. .PE - yes End pic picture. .PS - yes Begin pic picture. .TE - yes End table. .TH - yes End head- ing section of table. .TS x - yes Begin table; if x is H table has repeated heading. .ac A N - no Set up for ACM style output. A is the Author's name(s), N is the total number of pages. Must be given before the first initialization. .b x no no Print x in boldface; if no argument switch to boldface. .ba +n 0 yes Augments the base indent by n. This indent is used to set the indent on regular text (like paragraphs). .bc no yes Begin new column .bi x no no Print x in bold italics (nofill only) .bu - yes Begin bulleted paragraph .bx x no no Print x in a box (nofill only). .ef 'x'y'z' '''' no Set even footer to x y z .eh 'x'y'z' '''' no Set even header to x y z .fo 'x'y'z' '''' no Set footer to x y z .hx - no Suppress headers and footers on next page. .he 'x'y'z' '''' no Set header to x y z .hl - yes Draw a horizontal line .i x no no Italicize x; if x missing, italic text follows. .ip x y no yes Start indented para- graph, with hanging tag x. Indentation is y ens (default 5). .lp yes yes Start left-blocked paragraph. .lo - no Read in a file of local macros of the form .*x. Must be given before initialization. .np 1 yes Start numbered paragraph. .of 'x'y'z' '''' no Set odd footer to x y z .oh 'x'y'z' '''' no Set odd header to x y z .pd - yes Print delayed text. .pp no yes Begin paragraph. First line indented. .r yes no Roman text follows. .re - no Reset tabs to default values. .sc no no Read in a file of special characters and diacritical marks. Must be given before initial- ization. .sh n x - yes Section head follows, font automatically bold. n is level of section, x is title of section. .sk no no Leave the next page blank. Only one page is remembered ahead. .sm x - no Set x in a smaller pointsize. .sz +n 10p no Augment the point size by n points. .th no no Produce the paper in thesis format. Must be given before initialization. .tp no yes Begin title page. .u x - no Underline argument (even in troff). (Nofill only). .uh - yes Like .sh but unnumbered. .xp x - no Print index x. 3rd Berkeley Distribution October 23, 1996 ME(7)
