NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for deroff (netbsd section 1)

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 remain-
     der 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'' termi-
     nates 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 argu-
	     ments:
		   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, begin-
	     ning 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.
