NAME
       deroff, delatex - remove	formatting requests

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

       delatex file

DESCRIPTION
       Deroff  reads  each file	in sequence and	removes	all nroff and requests
       and non-text arguments, backslash constructions,	and constructs of pre-
       processors  such	 as and	Remaining text is written on the standard out-
       put.  Deroff follows files included by and commands; if a file has  al-
       ready been included, a for that file is ignored and a terminates	execu-
       tion.  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 or mm documents.

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

       Delatex	does  for  tex	and  latex (see	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.
