roff2dvi(1)		    General Commands Manual		   roff2dvi(1)

NAME
       roff2dvi	- transform roff code into dvi mode

SYNOPSIS
       roff2dvi	[ groffer_option ....]	[--] [ filespec	....]

       roff2dvi	-h|--help

       roff2dvi	-v|--version

       The  options -v and --version print the version information of the pro-
       gram to standard	output and exit.  The options -h and  --help  print  a
       usage  information  of the program to standard output and stop the pro-
       gram instantly.

       All other options are assumed to	be groffer options.  They  are	inter-
       nally  passed  to  groffer.  They override the behavior of the program.
       The options are optional, they can be omitted.

       The filespec arguments correspond to the	filespec arguments of groffer.
       So they are either the names of existing, readable files	or - for stan-
       dard input, or the name of a man	page or	a groffer(1) man  page	search
       pattern.	  If  no filespec is specified standard	input is assumed auto-
       matically.

DESCRIPTION
       roff2dvi	transforms roff	code into dvi mode.  Print the result to stan-
       dard output.

       input.
