PROOF(1)							      PROOF(1)

       proof - troff output interpreter

       proof [ -mmag ] [ -/nview ] [ -F dir ] [ -d ] [ file ]

       Proof  reads troff(1) intermediate language from file or standard input
       and simulates the resulting pages on the screen.

       After a page of text is displayed, proof pauses for a command from  the
       keyboard.  The typed commands are:

       newline	 Go on to next page of text.

       -	 Go back to the previous page.

       q	 Quit.

       pn	 Print	page  n.   An  out-of-bounds page number means the end
		 nearer to that number; a missing  number  means  the  current
		 page; a signed number means an offset to the current page.

       n	 Same as pn.

       c	 Clear the screen, then wait for another command.

       mmag	 Change	 the  magnification  at	 which	the output is printed.
		 Normally it is printed with magnification .9; mag=.5  shrinks
		 it to half size; mag=2 doubles the size.

       xval	 Move  everything val screen pixels to the right (left, if val
		 is negative).

       yval	 Move everything val screen pixels down (up, if val  is	 nega‐

       /nview	 Split	the  window  into nview pieces.	 The current page goes
		 into the rightmost, bottommost piece, and previous pages  are
		 shown in the other pieces.

       -F dir	 Use dir for fonts instead of /lib/font/bit.

       d	 Toggle the debug flag.

       These  commands are also available, under slightly different form, from
       a menu on button 3.  The pan menu item allows arbitrary positioning  of
       the page: after selecting pan, press the mouse button again and hold it
       down while moving the page to the desired location.  The page  will  be
       redisplayed  in its entirety when the button is released.  Mouse button
       1 also pans, without the need for selecting from a menu.

       The m, x, y, F, /, and d commands are also available  as	 command  line
