 NAME
      hyphen - find hyphenated words

 SYNOPSIS
      hyphen [files]

 DESCRIPTION
      hyphen finds all the hyphenated words ending lines in files and prints
      them on the standard output.  If no arguments are given, the standard
      input is used; thus, hyphen can be used as a filter.

 EXAMPLES
      Prepare an nroff hyphenation proofreading file for textfile.

	   mm textfile | hyphen

 WARNINGS
      hyphen cannot cope with hyphenated italics (i.e., underlined) words;
      it often misses them completely or mangles them.

      hyphen occasionally gets confused, but with no ill effects other than
      spurious extra output.
