MAN(7)                                                     MAN(7)

     NAME
          man - macros to typeset manual

     SYNOPSIS
          nroff  -man  file ...

          troff  -man  file ...

     DESCRIPTION
          These macros are used to lay out pages of this manual.  A
          skeleton page may be found in the file /usr/man/man0/xx.

          Any text argument t may be zero to six words.  Quotes may be
          used to include blanks in a `word'.  If text is empty, the
          special treatment is applied to the next input line with
          text to be printed.  In this way .I may be used to italicize
          a whole line, or .SM followed by .B to make small bold let-
          ters.

          A prevailing indent distance is remembered between succes-
          sive indented paragraphs, and is reset to default value upon
          reaching a non-indented paragraph.  Default units for
          indents i are ens.

          Type font and size are reset to default values before each
          paragraph, and after processing font and size setting mac-
          ros.

          These strings are predefined by -man:

          \*R  `(Reg)', trademark symbol in troff.

          \*S  Change to default type size.

     BUGS
          There is no direct way to suppress column widows in 2-column
          output; the column lengths may be adjusted by inserting .sp
          requests before the .1C
