nroff - Formats text
nroff [option...] [file...]
Options can appear in any order as long as they precede any file names.
Prints only pages whose page numbers appear in the comma-separated list
of numbers and ranges specified in the list argument. A range of N-M
means pages N through M. An argument of the form -N means from the
beginning of the text up to page N. An argument of the form N- means
from page N to the end of the text.
-nN Directs nroff to use N as the number for the first generated page.
-sN Stops every N pages. The nroff command halts after formatting N pages
to allow paper reloading or changing and resumes when it receives a new
line signal. The default for N is 1.
Prepends the macro file /usr/share/lib/tmac/tmac.name to the files
specified in the nroff command line.
Sets register a to N. The register specification is limited to a sin-
-i Reads from standard input after the specified list of files is
-q Invokes the simultaneous input-output mode of the .rd request.
Prepares output for the specified terminal. The name argument refers
to tabname files in /usr/share/lib/term. The default name is lpr,
which refers to a dumb 10-pitch printer with no halfline or upline
-e Produces equally-spaced words in adjusted lines, using full terminal
-h Uses output tabs during horizontal spacing to speed output and reduce
output character count. Tab settings are assumed to be every eight
nominal character widths.
The nroff command formats text in the specified files for typewriter-like
devices. If no file argument is present, nroff reads from standard input.
An argument consisting of a single minus sign (-) is taken to be a file
name corresponding to standard input.
