tc - photypesetter simulator SYNOPSIS
tc [ -t ] [ -sN ] [ -pL ] [ file ] DESCRIPTION
Tc interprets its input (standard input default) as device codes for a Graphic Systems phototypesetter (cat). The standard output of tc is intended for a Tektronix 4015 (a 4014 teminal with ASCII and APL character sets). The sixteen typesetter sizes are mapped into the 4014's four sizes; the entire TROFF character set is drawn using the 4014's character generator, using overstruck combinations where necessary. Typical usage: troff -t file | tc At the end of each page tc waits for a newline (empty line) from the keyboard before continuing on to the next page. In this wait state, the command e will suppress the screen erase before the next page; sN will cause the next N pages to be skipped; and !line will send line to the shell. The command line options are: -t Don't wait between pages; for directing output into a file. -sN Skip the first N pages. -pL Set page length to L. L may include the scale factors p (points), i (inches), c (centimeters), and P (picas); default is picas. '-l w' Multiply the default aspect ratio, 1.5, of a displayed page by l/w. SEE ALSO
troff(1), plot(1) BUGS
Font distinctions are lost. The aspect ratio option is unbelievable. TC(1)

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 Graphic Systems C/A/T phototypesetter; nroff is used for for typewriter-like devices. Their capabilities are described in the Nroff/Troff user's manual. 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 corre- sponding to the standard input. The options, which may appear in any order so long as they appear before the files, are: -olist Print only pages whose page numbers appear in the comma-separated list of numbers and ranges. A range N-M means pages N through M; an initial -N means from the beginning to page N; and a final N- means from N to the end. -nN Number first generated page N. -sN Stop every N pages. Nroff will halt prior to every N pages (default N=1) to allow paper loading or changing, and will resume upon receipt of a newline. Troff will stop the phototypesetter every N pages, produce a trailer to allow changing cassettes, and resume when the typesetter's start button is pressed. -mname Prepend the macro file /usr/share/tmac/ to the input files. -raN Set register a (one-character) to N. -i Read standard input after the input files are exhausted. -q Invoke the simultaneous input-output mode of the rd request. Troff only -t Direct output to the standard output instead of the phototypesetter. -f Refrain from feeding out paper and stopping phototypesetter at the end of the run. -w Wait until phototypesetter is available, if currently busy. -b Report whether the phototypesetter is busy or available. No text processing is done. -a Send a printable ASCII approximation of the results to the standard output. -pN Print all characters in point size N while retaining all prescribed spacings and motions, to reduce phototypesetter elapsed time. -Ffontdir The directory fontdir contains the font width tables instead of the default directory /usr/share/fonts. This option can be used to produce output for devices besides the phototypesetter. If the file /usr/adm/tracct is writable, troff keeps phototypesetter accounting records there. The integrity of that file may be secured by making troff a 'set user-id' program. FILES
