       me - macros for formatting papers

       nroff -me [ options ] file ...
       *roff -me [ options ] file ...

       This  package  of  and macro definitions provides a formatting facility
       for technical papers in various formats.	 When producing 2-column  out‐
       put on a terminal, filter the output through

       Many and requests are unsafe in conjunction with this package; however,
       these requests can be used with impunity after the first .pp:

	      .bp     Begin new page
	      .br     Break output line here
	      .sp n   Insert n spacing lines
	      .ls n   Line spacing: n=1 single, n=2 double space
	      .na     No alignment of right margin
	      .ce n   Center next n lines
	      .ul n   Underline next n lines
	      .sz +n  Add n to point size

       Output of the and preprocessors for equations and tables is  acceptable
       as input.

       In  the	following list, “initialization” refers to the first .pp, .lp,
       .ip, .np, .sh, or .uh macro.  This list is  incomplete;	see  the  "-me
       Reference Manual", Supplementary Documents, Volume 1: General User, for
