NAME
ms - macros for formatting manuscripts SYNOPSIS
nroff -ms [ options ] file ... troff -ms [ options ] file ... DESCRIPTION
This package of nroff and troff macro definitions provides a canned formatting facility for technical papers in various formats. When pro- ducing 2-column output on a terminal, filter the output through col(1). The macro requests are defined below. Many nroff and troff requests are unsafe in conjunction with this package, however these requests may be used with impunity after the first .PP: Output of the eqn, neqn, refer, and tbl(1) preprocessors for equations and tables is acceptable as input.
