roff2text(1)		    General Commands Manual		  roff2text(1)

NAME
       roff2text - transform roff code into text mode

SYNOPSIS
       roff2text [ groffer_option ....]	 [--] [	filespec ....]

       roff2text -h|--help

       roff2text -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
