DESCRIPTION

The
nroff

script emulates the
nroff

command using groff.
Only
ascii,

ascii8,

latin1,

utf8,

nippon,

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 warnings are suppressed.
nroff-style character definitions (in the file tty-char.tmac) are also
loaded to emulate unrepresentable glyphs.
