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

MAN(7)				 Miscellaneous Information Manual			   MAN(7)

NAME
       man - macros to typeset manual

SYNOPSIS
       nroff  -man  file ...

       troff  -man  file ...

DESCRIPTION
       These  macros  are  used to lay out pages of this manual.  A skeleton page may be found in
       the file /usr/man/man0/xx.

       Any text argument t may be zero to six words.  Quotes may be used to include blanks  in	a
       `word'.	 If  text  is empty, the special treatment is applied to the next input line with
       text to be printed.  In this way .I may be used to italicize a whole line, or .SM followed
       by .B to make small bold letters.

       A  prevailing indent distance is remembered between successive indented paragraphs, and is
       reset to default value upon reaching a non-indented paragraph.  Default units for  indents
       i are ens.

       Type font and size are reset to default values before each paragraph, and after processing
       font and size setting macros.

       These strings are predefined by -man:

       \*R    `(Reg)', trademark symbol in troff.

       \*S    Change to default type size.

FILES
       /usr/lib/tmac/tmac.an
       /usr/man/man0/xx
