DEROFF(1)						    BSD General Commands Manual 						 DEROFF(1)

NAME
deroff -- remove nroff/troff, eqn, pic and tbl constructs SYNOPSIS
deroff [-ikpw] [-m a | e | l | m | s] [file ...] DESCRIPTION
deroff reads each file in sequence and removes all nroff(1) and troff(1) command lines, backslash constructions, macro definitions, eqn(1) constructs (between ``.EQ'' and ``.EN'' lines or between delimiters), pic(1) pictures, and table descriptions and writes the remainder to the standard output. deroff follows chains of included files (``.so'' and ``.nx'' commands); if a file has already been included, a ``.so'' is ignored and a ``.nx'' terminates execution. If no input file is given, deroff reads from the standard input. The options are as follows: -i Ignore ``.so'' and ``.nx'' commands. -k Keep blocks of text intact. This is the default behavior unless the -m option is given. -m Enable support for common macro packages. The -m option takes the following arguments: a recognize man(7) macros. e recognize me(7) macros. l remove list constructs. m recognize mm(7) macros. s recognize ms(7) macros. -p Preserve paragraph macros. This option only has an effect if the -m option is also specified. -w Output a word list, one 'word' (string of letters, digits, and apostrophes, beginning with a letter; apostrophes are removed) per line, and all other characters ignored. Normally, the output follows the original, with the deletions mentioned above. SEE ALSO
eqn(1), nroff(1), pic(1), tbl(1), troff(1) HISTORY
deroff appeared in Version 7 AT&T UNIX. BUGS
deroff is not a complete troff(1) interpreter, so it can be confused by subtle constructs. Most errors result in too much rather than too little output. The -ml option does not correctly handle nested lists. BSD

NAME
deroff - remove nroff/troff, tbl, and eqn constructs SYNOPSIS
deroff [ -m [m | s | l] ] [-w] [-i] [ filename...] DESCRIPTION
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. ATTRIBUTES
