NAME
       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

SYNOPSIS
       nroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -p ] [ -rcn ] [ -S ] [ -t ]
	     [ -Tname ] [ -U ] [ -v ] [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       The nroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.  Only ascii,  latin1,  utf8,  and
       cp1047  are  valid  arguments  for the -T option.  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 -C, -i, -n, -m, -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.
