       ms - macros for formatting manuscripts

       nroff -ms [ options ] file ...
       troff -ms [ options ] file ...

       This  package  of  nroff and troff macro definitions provides a canned formatting facility
       for technical papers in various formats.  When producing 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 con-
       junction 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.
