Unix Version 7 - man page for tc (v7 section 1)

TC(1)				     General Commands Manual				    TC(1)

NAME
       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 con-
       tinuing 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.
