       deroff - remove nroff, tbl, and neqn constructs

       x] [file ...]

       reads  each  file  in  sequence	and removes all requests, macro calls,
       backslash constructs, constructs (between and lines, and between delim‐
       iters  —	 see  neqn(1)),	 and descriptions (see tbl(1)), replacing them
       with white space (blanks and blank lines), and writes the remainder  of
       the  file on the standard output.  follows chains of included files and
       formatter commands); if a file has already been included, a naming that
       file  is	 ignored  and  a naming that file terminates execution.	 If no
       input file is given, reads the standard input.

       The option can be followed by an or The option  causes  the  macros  be
       interpreted  such  that	only  running text is output (that is, no text
       from macro lines).  The option forces the option and also causes	 dele‐
       tion of lists associated with the macros.

       If  the	option	is  given, the output is a word list, one ``word'' per
       line, with all other characters deleted.	 Otherwise, the output follows
       the  original, with the deletions mentioned above.  In text, a ``word''
       is any multi-byte character string or any string that contains at least
       two letters and is composed of letters, digits, ampersands and apostro‐
       phes In a macro call, however, a ``word''  is  a	 multi-byte  character
       string or a string that begins with at least two letters and contains a
       total of at least three letters.	 Delimiters are any  characters	 other
       than  letters,  digits, apostrophes, and ampersands.  Trailing apostro‐
       phes and ampersands are removed from ``words.''

       If the option is specified, ignores the and commands.

   Environment Variables

       multi-byte characters.  Note that multi-byte punctuation characters are
       not recognized when using the option.

       variable.  If is not specified or is set to the empty string, a default
       of "C" (see lang(5)) is used instead of

       If  any	internationalization  variable	contains  an  invalid setting,

       structs.	 Most such errors result in too much rather  than  too	little

       The option does not handle nested lists correctly.
