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.

     BUGS
          Font distinctions are lost.
          The aspect ratio option is unbelievable.
