TC(1) TC(1) NAME tc - photypesetter simulator SYNOPSIS tc [ -t ] [ -sN ] [ -pL ] [ file ] DESCRIPTION Tc interprets its input (standard input default) as device codes for a Graphic Systems phototypesetter (cat). The standard output of tc is intended for a Tektronix 4015 (a 4014 teminal with ASCII and APL character sets). The six- teen typesetter sizes are mapped into the 4014's four sizes; the entire TROFF character set is drawn using the 4014's character generator, using overstruck combinations where necessary. Typical usage: troff -t file | tc At the end of each page tc waits for a newline (empty line) from the keyboard before continuing on to the next page. In this wait state, the command e will suppress the screen erase before the next page; sN will cause the next N pages to be skipped; and !line will send line to the shell. The command line options are: -t Don't wait between pages; for directing output into a file. -sN Skip the first N pages. -pL Set page length to L. L may include the scale factors p (points), i (inches), c (centimeters), and P (picas); default is picas. '-l w' Multiply the default aspect ratio, 1.5, of a displayed page by l/w. SEE ALSO troff(1), plot(1) BUGS Font distinctions are lost. The aspect ratio option is unbelievable.
