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.
