PDFMOM(1)		    General Commands Manual		     PDFMOM(1)

NAME
       pdfmom -	produce	PDF documents using the	mom macro package for groff

SYNOPSIS
       pdfmom [-Tpdf] [groff-options] file ...

       pdfmom -Tps [pdfroff-options] [groff-options] file ...

       pdfmom -v

DESCRIPTION
       pdfmom  is a wrapper around groff(1) that facilitates the production of
       PDF documents from files	formatted with the mom macros.

       pdfmom prints to	the standard output, so	output must usually  be	 redi-
       rected to a destination file.  The size of the final PDF	can be reduced
       by piping the output through ps2pdf(1).

       If called with the -Tpdf	option (which is  the  default),  pdfmom  pro-
       cesses  files  using  groff's native PDF	driver,	gropdf(1).  If -Tps is
       given, processing is passed over	to pdfroff, which uses	groff's	 Post-
       Script  driver.	 In  either case, multiple runs	of the source file are
       performed in order to satisfy any forward references in the document.

       pdfmom accepts all the same options as groff.  If -Tps  is  given,  the
       options associated with pdfroff are accepted as well.  Please note that
       when pdfmom calls pdfroff, the
	      -mpdfmark	-mom --no-toc
       options are implied and should  not  be	given  on  the	command	 line.
       Equally,	 it is not necessary to	supply the -mom	or -m mom options when
       -Tps is absent.

       PDF integration with the	mom macros is discussed	in full	in the	manual
       Producing  PDFs with groff and mom, which was itself produced with pdf-
       mom.

       If called with the -v option, pdfmom simply displays its	version	infor-
       mation and exits.

BUGS
       pdfmom sometimes	issues warnings	of the type
	      ...: can't transparently output node at top level
       but this	is more	of an annoyance	than a bug, and	may safely be ignored.
