GROG(1)			    General Commands Manual		       GROG(1)

NAME
       grog - guess options for	groff command

SYNOPSIS
       grog [ -option ...  ] [ files...	 ]

DESCRIPTION
       grog  reads  files  and guesses which of	the groff(1) options -e, -man,
       -me, -mm, -ms, -mdoc, -mdoc-old,	-p, -R,	-g, -G,	-s,  and  -t  are  re-
       quired for printing files, and prints the groff command including those
       options on the standard output.	A filename of -	is taken to  refer  to
       the  standard input.  If	no files are specified the standard input will
       be read.	 Any specified options will be included	in  the	 printed  com-
       mand.   No  space  is allowed between options and their arguments.  The
       only options recognized are -C (which is	also passed on)	to enable com-
       patibility mode,	and -v to print	the version number.

       For example,

	      `grog -Tdvi paper.ms`

       will  guess  the	 appropriate command to	print paper.ms and then	run it
       after adding the	-Tdvi option.
