NAME
       me - macros for formatting papers

SYNOPSIS
       nroff  -me [options] filename...

       troff  -me [options] filename...

DESCRIPTION
       This  package  of  nroff and troff macro definitions provides a canned formatting facility
       for technical papers in various formats. When producing 2-column  output  on  a	terminal,
       filter the output through col(1).

       The macro requests are defined below. Many nroff and troff requests are unsafe in conjunc-
       tion with this package, however, these requests may be used with impunity after the  first
       .pp:

       .bp	   begin new page

       .br	   break output line here

       .sp n	   insert n spacing lines

       .ls n	   (line spacing) n=1 single, n=2 double space

       .na	   no alignment of right margin

       .ce n	   center next n lines

       .ul n	   underline next n lines

       .sz +n	   add n to point size

       Output of the eqn(1), neqn(1), refer(1), and tbl(1) preprocessors for equations and tables
       is acceptable as input.

REQUESTS
       In the following list, "initialization" refers to the first .pp, .lp, .ip,  .np,  .sh,  or
       .uh macro. This list is incomplete.
