Name
       deroff - remove formatting codes from text

Syntax
       deroff [-w] file...

Description
       The  command  reads  each  file in sequence and removes all and command
       lines, backslash constructions, macro definitions, constructs  (between
       .EQ  and	 .EN  lines or between delimiters), and table descriptions and
       writes the remainder on	the  standard  output.	 The  command  follows
       chains  of included files (.so and .nx commands); if a file has already
       been included, the .so command is ignored and an .nx command terminates
       execution.   If	no  input file is given, reads from the standard input
       file.

Options
       -w   Generates word list (one word per line).

Restrictions
       The command is not a complete interpreter, so it	 can  be  confused  by
       subtle constructs.  Most errors result in too much rather than too lit‐
       tle output.

       The -w flag removes every one- or two-character word.
