       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

       nroff [ -CchipStUv ] [ -dcs ] [ -Mdir ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ]
	     [ -rcn ] [ -Tname ] [ file ... ]

       The nroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.	  Only	ascii,
       latin1, koi8-r, utf8, and cp1047 are valid arguments for the -T option,
       selecting the output encoding emitted by	 grotty,  groff's  TTY	output
       device.	 If an invalid or no -T option is given, nroff checks the cur‐
       rent 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 and -c options are equivalent to grotty's options -h (using tabs
       in  the	output)	 and  -c  (using  the old output scheme instead of SGR
       escape sequences).  The -d, -C, -i, -M, -m, -n, -o, and -r options have
       the  effect described in troff(1).  In addition, nroff silently ignores
       the options -e, -q, and	-s  (which  are	 not  implemented  in  troff).
       Options	-p  (pic), -t (tbl), -S (safer), and -U (unsafe) are passed to
       groff.  -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, `/usr/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.
