NAME
       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

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

DESCRIPTION
       The nroff 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, nroff 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 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  -C,  -i, -n, -m, -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.

ENVIRONMENT
       GROFF_BIN_PATH
	      A colon separated list of directories in which to search for the
	      groff executable before searching in PATH.  If unset, `/usr/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.
