deroff(1) General Commands Manual deroff(1)Name
deroff - remove formatting codes from text
deroff [-w] file...
The command reads each file in sequence and removes all and command lines, backslash constructions, macro definitions, constructs (between
.EQ and .EN lines or between delimiters), and table descriptions and writes the remainder on the standard output. The command follows
chains of included files (.so and .nx commands); if a file has already been included, the .so command is ignored and an .nx command termi-
nates execution. If no input file is given, reads from the standard input file.
Options-w Generates word list (one word per line).
The command is not a complete interpreter, so it can be confused by subtle constructs. Most errors result in too much rather than too lit-
The -w flag removes every one- or two-character word.

deroff - remove nroff, troff, tbl and eqn constructs
deroff [ -w ] file ...
Deroff reads each file in sequence and removes all nroff and troff command lines, backslash constructions, macro definitions, eqn con-
structs (between `.EQ' and `.EN' lines or between delimiters), and table descriptions and writes the remainder on the standard output.
Deroff follows chains of included files (`.so' and `.nx' commands); if a file has already been included, a `.so' is ignored and a `.nx'
terminates execution. If no input file is given, deroff reads from the standard input file.
If the -w flag is given, the output is a word list, one `word' (string of letters, digits, and apostrophes, beginning with a letter; apos-
trophes are removed) per line, and all other characters ignored. Otherwise, the output follows the original, with the deletions mentioned
