OpenSolaris 2009.06 - man page for checknr (opensolaris section 1)

checknr(1)				  User Commands 			       checknr(1)

       checknr - check nroff and troff input files; report possible errors

       checknr [-fs] [-a . x1 . y1 . x2 . y2 ... .xn .yn]
	    [-c . x1 . x2 . x3 ... .xn] [filename]...

       checknr	checks	a  list  of  nroff(1) or troff(1) input files for certain kinds of errors
       involving mismatched opening and closing delimiters and unknown commands. If no files  are
       specified, checknr checks the standard input. Delimiters checked are:

	   o	  Font changes using \fx ... \fP.

	   o	  Size changes using \sx ... \s0.

	   o	  Macros  that	come in open ... close forms, for example, the .TS and .TE macros
		  which must always come in pairs.

       checknr knows about the ms(5) and me(5) macro packages.

       checknr is intended to be used on documents that are prepared with checknr  in  mind.   It
       expects	a certain document writing style for \f and \s commands, in that each \fx must be
       terminated with \fP and each \sx must be terminated  with  \s0.	While  it  will  work  to
       directly  go into the next font or explicitly specify the original font or point size, and
       many existing documents actually do this, such a practice  will	produce  complaints  from
       checknr. Since it is probably better to use the \fP and \s0 forms anyway, you should think
       of this as a contribution to your document preparation style.

       -f		       Ignore \f font changes.

       -s		       Ignore \s size changes.

       -a .x1 .y1...	       Add pairs of macros to the list. The pairs of macros  are  assumed
			       to  be those (such as .DS and .DE) that should be checked for bal-
			       ance.  The -a option must be followed by groups of six characters,
			       each  group  defining  a  pair of macros. The six characters are a
			       period, the first macro name, another period, and the second macro
			       name. For example, to define a pair .BS and .ES, use `-a.BS.ES'

       -c .x1...	       Define  commands  which	checknr would otherwise complain about as

       See attributes(5) for descriptions of the following attributes:

       |      ATTRIBUTE TYPE	     |	    ATTRIBUTE VALUE	   |
       |Availability		     |SUNWdoc			   |

       eqn(1), nroff(1), troff(1), attributes(5), me(5), ms(5)

       There is no way to define a one-character macro name using the -a option.
