NAME
       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

SYNOPSIS
       nroff [ -CchipStUv ] [ -dcs ] [ -Mdir ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -rcn ]
	     [ -Tname ] [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       The nroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.  Only ascii,  latin1,  utf8,  and
       cp1047  are  valid  arguments  for the -T option, selecting the output encoding emitted by
       grotty, groff's TTY output device.  If an invalid or no -T option is given,  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, and -r 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 shows the version
       number.

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

NOTES
       This  shell  script is basically intended for use with man(1), so warnings are suppressed.
       nroff-style character definitions (in the file tty-char.tmac) are also loaded  to  emulate
       unrepresentable glyphs.
