       proof - troff output interpreter

       proof [ -mmag ] [ -/nview ] [ -F dir ] [ -d ] [ file ]

       Proof  reads  troff(1) intermediate language from file or standard input and simulates the
       resulting pages on the screen.

       After a page of text is displayed, proof pauses for a  command  from  the  keyboard.   The
       typed commands are:

       newline	 Go on to next page of text.

       -	 Go back to the previous page.

       q	 Quit.

       pn	 Print page n.	An out-of-bounds page number means the end nearer to that number;
		 a missing number means the current page; a signed number means an offset to  the
		 current page.

       n	 Same as pn.

       c	 Clear the screen, then wait for another command.

       mmag	 Change the magnification at which the output is printed.  Normally it is printed
		 with magnification .9; mag=.5 shrinks it to half size; mag=2 doubles the size.

       xval	 Move everything val screen pixels to the right (left, if val is negative).

       yval	 Move everything val screen pixels down (up, if val is negative).

       /nview	 Split the window into nview pieces.  The current page goes into  the  rightmost,
		 bottommost piece, and previous pages are shown in the other pieces.

       -F dir	 Use dir for fonts instead of /lib/font/bit.

       d	 Toggle the debug flag.

       These commands are also available, under slightly different form, from a menu on button 3.
       The pan menu item allows arbitrary positioning of the page: after selecting pan, press the
       mouse  button  again  and hold it down while moving the page to the desired location.  The
       page will be redisplayed in its entirety when the button is released.

       The m, x, y, F, /, and d commands are also available as command line options.
