TROFF(1)			     General Commands Manual				 TROFF(1)

NAME
       troff, nroff - text formatting and typesetting

SYNOPSIS
       troff [ option ...  ] [ file ...  ]

       nroff [ option ...  ] [ file ...  ]

DESCRIPTION
       Troff  formats text in the named files for printing on a typesetter.  Nroff does the same,
       but produces output suitable for typewriter-like devices.

       If no file argument is present, the standard input is read.  An argument consisting  of	a
       single  minus  (-)  is  taken  to be a file name corresponding to the standard input.  The
       options are:

       -olist  Print pages in the comma-separated list of numbers and ranges.  A range N-M  means
	       N through M; initial -M means up to M; final N- means from N to the end.

       -nN     Number first generated page N.

       -mname  Process the macro file /sys/lib/tmac/tmac.name before the input files.

       -raN    Set register a (one character name) to N.

       -i      Read standard input after the input files are exhausted.

       -q      Invoke the simultaneous input-output mode of the rd request.

       -N      Produce output suitable for typewriter-like devices.

   Typesetter devices (not -N) only
       -a      Send a printable textual approximation of the results to the standard output.

       -Tdest  Prepare output for typesetter dest:
	       -Tutf	(The  default.)  PostScript printers with preprocessing to handle Unicode
			characters encoded in UTF

	       -Tpost	Regular PostScript printers

	       -T202	Mergenthaler Linotron 202

       -Fdir  Take font information from directory dir.

   Typewriter (-N) output only
       -sN     Halt prior to every N pages (default N=1) to allow paper loading or changing.

       -Tname  Prepare output for specified terminal.  Known names include  utf  for  the  normal
	       Plan  9	UTF  encoding of the Unicode Standard character set (default), 37 for the
	       Teletype model 37, lp (`line-printer') for any terminal without half-line capabil-
	       ity, 450 for the DASI-450 (Diablo Hyterm), and think (HP ThinkJet).

       -e      Produce equally-spaced words in adjusted lines, using full terminal resolution.

       -h      Use  output tabs during horizontal spacing to speed output and reduce output char-
	       acter count.  Tab settings are assumed to be every 8 nominal character widths.

FILES
       /tmp/trtmp*
	      temporary file

       /sys/lib/tmac/tmac.*
	      standard macro files
