NAME

       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff


SYNOPSIS

       nroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -p ] [ -rcn ]
             [ -S ] [ -t ] [ -Tname ] [ -U ] [ -v ] [ file ... ]


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