HTMLROFF(1)							   HTMLROFF(1)

       htmlroff - HTML formatting and typesetting

       htmlroff [ -iuv ] [ -m name ] [ -r aN ] [ file ...  ]

       Htmlroff	 accepts  troff(1)  input in the named files and formats it as
       HTML for viewing in a web browser.

       If no file argument is given, htmlroff reads the	 standard  input.   An
       argument	 consisting  of	 a single minus (-) is taken to be a file name
       corresponding to the standard input.  The options are:

       -i     Read standard input after the input files are exhausted.

       -mname Process the macro file /sys/lib/tmac/ before the	 input

       -raN   Set register a (one character name) to N.

       -u     Generate	UTF  output.   By  default,  htmlroff converts Unicode
	      runes into the corresponding  HTML  entity  sequences  (α,
	       , and so on).  Htmlroff invokes tcs(1) for the conversion.

       -v     Generate debugging output and warnings about suspicious input.

       Most troff input files, especially those using the ms(6) macros, can be
       used unaltered.	In general, the macro file tmac.html  should  be  pro‐
       cessed  after processing other standard macro files, as in htmlroff -ms

       Htmlroff(6) describes the changes to the input language.

       Mhtml(6) describes the new macros.

       Format the Plan 9 web page:

	      cd /usr/web/plan9
	      htmlroff -mhtml >index.html

       Format a paper:

	      cd /sys/doc
	      pic | tbl | eqn | htmlroff -ms -mhtml >auth.html

	      Mapping from troff two-character	names  like  \(*a  to  Unicode
	      characters like α.
