DESCRIPTION

       sgml2txt  is an old and obsoleted form of the text converter command of
       LinuxDoc-Tools.  It is recommended to switch the new form  linuxdoc  -B
       text  now.   It  converts  a  LinuxDoc  DTD  SGML source file to ASCII,
       ISO-8859-1, or EUC-JP output. Output will appear in file.txt where file
       is the name of the SGML source file.

       The attribute/value pair "output=txt" is set for conditionals.


OPTIONS

       sgml2txt  accepts all the generic options described in linuxdoc(1), and
       the following specific options:

       --manpage, -m
              Outputs a groff source file, suitable for formatting with  groff
              -man for man pages

       --filter, -f

       --pass, -P
              The argument of the pass option is  added  to  the  command-line
              options handed to groff(1).

       --blanks=n, -b
              Set  the limit of continuous blank lines for generating the out-
              put document.  The default limit is 3. if 0 (zero) is specified,
