     TROFF(1)                                                 TROFF(1)

          troff, nroff - text formatting and typesetting

          troff [ option ] ...  [ file ] ...

          nroff [ option ] ...  [ file ] ...

          Troff formats text in the named files for printing on a pho-
          totypesetter; nroff for typewriter-like devices.  Their
          capabilities are described in the Nroff/Troff user's manual.

          If no file argument is present, the standard input is read.
          An argument consisting of a single minus (-) is taken to be
          a file name corresponding to the standard input.  The
          options, which may appear in any order so long as they
          appear before the files, are:

          -olist Print only pages whose page numbers appear in the
                 comma-separated list of numbers and ranges.  A range
                 N-M means pages N through M; an initial -N means from
                 the beginning to page N; and a final N- means from N
                 to the end.

          -nN    Number first generated page N.

          -mname Prepend the macro file /usr/lib/tmac/ to the
                 input files.

          -raN   Set register a (one character name) to N.

          -i     Read standard input after the input files are

          -q     Invoke the simultaneous input-output mode of the rd

          -z     produce no output: diagnostics and .tm messages only

          Troff only

          -a     Send a printable ASCII approximation of the results
                 to the standard output.

          -Tdest Prepare output for typesetter dest. -T202 = Mergen-
                 thaler Linotron 202 (default), -Tcat = Graphic Sys-
                 tems C/A/T, -Taps = Autologic APS-5.

          -Fdir  take font information from directory dir

     TROFF(1)                                                 TROFF(1)

          Nroff only

          -sN    Nroff will halt prior to every N pages (default N=1)
                 to allow paper loading or changing, and will resume
                 upon receipt of a newline.

          -Tname Prepare output for specified terminal.  Known names
                 include 37 for the (default) Teletype Corporation
                 Model 37 terminal, lp (`line-printer') for any termi-
                 nal without half-line capability, 450 for the DASI-
                 450 (Diablo Hyterm), and think (HP ThinkJet, see

          -e     Produce equally-spaced words in adjusted lines, using
                 full terminal resolution.

          -h     Use output tabs during horizontal spacing to speed
                 output and reduce output character count.  Tab set-
                 tings are assumed to be every 8 nominal character

          If the file /usr/adm/tracct is writable, troff writes photo-
          typesetter accounting records there.  The integrity of that
          file may be secured by making troff a `set user-id' program.

          /tmp/trtmp*           temporary file
          /usr/lib/tmac/tmac.*  standard macro files
          /usr/lib/term/*       terminal driving tables for nroff
          /usr/lib/font/*       font width tables for troff
          /usr/adm/tracct       accounting statistics for troff
