GNROFF(1)GNROFF(1)NAMEgnroff - emulate nroff command with groff
SYNOPSISgnroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -p ] [ -rcn ]
[ -t ] [ -S ] [ -Tname ] [ -U ] [ -v ] [ file... ]
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.
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.
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.
