       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

       nroff [-CchipStUvwW] [-dcs] [-Mdir] [-mname] [-nnum] [-olist] [-rcn] [-Tname] [file ...]
       nroff --help
       nroff -v | --version

       The  nroff  script  emulates the nroff command using groff.  Only ascii, latin1, utf8, and
       cp1047 are devices accepted by nroff to select the  output  encoding  emitted  by  grotty,
       groff's	TTY  output device.  If neither the GROFF_TYPESETTER environment variable nor the
       -T command line option (which overrides the  environment  variable)  specifies  a  (valid)
       device, nroff checks the current locale to select a default output device.  It first tries
       the locale program, then the environment variables LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and LANG, and finally
       the LESSCHARSET environment variable.

       The -h and -c options are equivalent to grotty's options -h (using tabs in the output) and
       -c (using the old output scheme instead of SGR escape sequences).  The -d, -C, -i, -M, -m,
       -n,  -o, -r, -w, and -W options have the effect described in troff(1).  In addition, nroff
       silently ignores the options -e, -q, and -s (which are not implemented in troff).  Options
       -p  (pic),  -t  (tbl),  -S (safer), and -U (unsafe) are passed to groff.  -v and --version
       show the version number, --help prints a help message.

	      The default device for groff.  If not set (which is the normal case),  it  defaults
	      to `ps'.

	      A  colon	separated list of directories in which to search for the groff executable
	      before searching in PATH.  If unset, `/usr/bin' is used.

       This shell script is basically intended for use with man(1).  nroff-style character  defi-
       nitions (in the file tty-char.tmac) are also loaded to emulate unrepresentable glyphs.
