DEROFF(1)		    General Commands Manual		     DEROFF(1)

NAME
       deroff, delatex - remove	formatting requests

SYNOPSIS
       deroff [	option ...  ] file ...

       delatex file

DESCRIPTION
       Deroff  reads  each file	in sequence and	removes	all nroff and troff(1)
       requests	and non-text  arguments,  backslash  constructions,  and  con-
       structs of preprocessors	such as	eqn(1),	pic(1),	and tbl(1).  Remaining
       text is written on the standard output.	Deroff follows files  included
       by  and	commands; if a file has	already	been included, a for that file
       is ignored and a	terminates execution.  If  no  input  file  is	given,
       deroff reads from standard input.

       The options are

       -w     Output  a	 word list, one	`word' (string of letters, digits, and
	      properly embedded	ampersands and apostrophes, beginning  with  a
	      letter) per line.	 Other characters are skipped.	Otherwise, the
	      output follows the original, with	the deletions mentioned	above.

       -_     Like -w, but consider underscores	to be alphanumeric rather than
	      punctuation.

       -i     Ignore and requests.

       -ms

       -mm    Remove titles, attachments, etc.,	as well	as ordinary troff con-
	      structs, from ms(7) or mm	documents.

       -ml    Same as -mm, but remove lists as well.

       Delatex does for	tex and	latex (see tex(1)) files what deroff -wi  does
       for troff files.

BUGS
       These filters are not complete interpreters of troff or tex.  For exam-
       ple, macro definitions containing cause chaos in	deroff when the	 popu-
       lar delimiters for eqn are in effect.

       Text  inside  macros  is	 emitted  at place of definition, not place of
       call.
