GNROFF(1)							     GNROFF(1)

NAME
       gnroff - emulate nroff command with groff

SYNOPSIS
       gnroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -p ] [ -rcn ]
	      [ -t ] [ -S ] [ -Tname ] [ -U ] [ -v ] [ file... ]

DESCRIPTION
       The gnroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.  Only	ascii,
       latin1,	utf8, and cp1047 are valid arguments for the -T option.	 If an
       invalid or no -T option is given, gnroff checks the current  locale  to
       select  a  default  output  device.  It first tries the locale program,
       then the environment variables LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and LANG, and  finally
       the LESSCHARSET environment variable.

       The -h option is equivalent to the grotty's -h option (i.e., using tabs
       in the output).	The -i, -n, -m, -o and	-r  options  have  the	effect
       described  in  gtroff(1).   In  addition,  gnroff  silently ignores the
       options -e, -q, and -s (which are not implemented in gtroff).   Options
       -p  (pic),  -t  (tbl), -S (safer), and -U (unsafe) are passed to groff.
       -S is passed by default.	 -v shows the version number.

ENVIRONMENT
       GROFF_BIN_PATH
	      A colon separated list of directories in which to search for the
	      groff  executable	 before	 searching in PATH.  If unset, `/free‐
	      ware/gnu-tools/vax/bin' is used.

NOTES
       This shell script is basically intended for use with man(1),  so	 warn‐
       ings  are  suppressed.	nroff-style character definitions (in the file
       tty-char.tmac) are also loaded to emulate unrepresentable glyphs.
