DEROFF(1)										DEROFF(1)

       deroff, delatex - remove formatting requests

       deroff [ option ...  ] file ...

       delatex file

       Deroff  reads  each  file in sequence and removes all nroff and troff(1) requests and non-
       text arguments, backslash constructions, and constructs of preprocessors such  as  eqn(1),
       pic(1),	and  tbl(1).   Remaining  text is written on the standard output.  Deroff follows
       files included by and commands; if a file has already been included, a for  that  file  is
       ignored and a terminates execution.  If no input file is given, deroff reads from standard

       The options are

       -w     Output a word list, one `word' (string of letters, digits,  and  properly  embedded
	      ampersands  and  apostrophes,  beginning with a letter) per line.  Other characters
	      are skipped.  Otherwise, the output follows the original, with the  deletions  men-
	      tioned above.

       -i     Ignore and requests.


       -mm    Remove  titles, attachments, etc., as well as ordinary troff constructs, from ms(6)
	      or mm documents.

       -ml    Same as -mm, but remove lists as well.

       Delatex does for tex and latex (see tex(1)) files what deroff -wi does for troff files.


       troff(1), tex(1), spell(1)

       These filters are not complete interpreters of troff or tex.  For example,  macro  defini-
       tions containing cause chaos in deroff when the popular delimiters for eqn are in effect.
       Text inside macros is emitted at place of definition, not place of call.
