roff2x(1)		    General Commands Manual		     roff2x(1)

NAME
       roff2x -	transform roff code into x mode

SYNOPSIS
       roff2x [groffer-option ...] [--]	[filespec ...]

       roff2x -h
       roff2x --help

       roff2x -v
       roff2x --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
       roff2x transforms roff code into	X mode corresponding to	the groff  de-
       vices  X*; this mode is suitable	for gxditview(1).  Print the result to
       standard	output.

       There are more of these programs	for generating other formats  of  roff
       input.

       roff2dvi(1)
	      is for dvi mode.

       roff2html(1)
	      generates	HTML output.

       roff2pdf(1)
	      outputs pdf mode.

       roff2ps(1)
	      prints PostScript	format to standard output.

       roff2text(1)
