NAME
tbl - format tables for nroff or troff SYNOPSIS
tbl [-me] [-mm] [-ms] [filename]... DESCRIPTION
tbl is a preprocessor for formatting tables for nroff(1) or troff(1). The input filenames are copied to the standard output, except that lines between .TS and .TE command lines are assumed to describe tables and are reformatted. If no arguments are given, tbl reads the standard input, so tbl may be used as a filter. When tbl is used with eqn(1) or neqn, the tbl command should be first, to minimize the volume of data passed through pipes. OPTIONS
-me Copy the -me macro package to the front of the output file. -mm Copy the -mm macro package to the front of the output file. -ms Copy the -ms macro package to the front of the output file. EXAMPLES
Example 1 Using tbl As an example, letting `@' (at-sign) represent a TAB, which should be typed as an actual TAB character in the input file .TS c s s c c s c c c l n n.

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

deroff is not a complete troff interpreter, so it can be confused by subtle constructs. Most such errors result in too much rather than too little output. The -ml option does not handle nested lists correctly. SunOS 5.10 14 Sep 1992 deroff(1)
