NAME
       vnroff -	Vietnamese pre-processor for groff

SYNTAX
       vnroff filename | groff [groff-options]

DESCRIPTION
       This  program  processes	 a text	file with special Vietnamese character
       sequences (VIQR syntax) giving an output	suitable for groff(1) process-
       ing.  The output	should work for	all point sizes	supported by groff(1)

       The default diacritical marks are defined as:
	    Dau_Sac	    '
	    Dau_Huyen	    `
	    Dau_Hoi	    ?
	    Dau_Nga	    ~
	    Dau_Nang	    .
	    Dau_Mu	    ^
	    Dau_Trang	    (
	    Dau_Rau	    +
	    Escape_Symbol   \

SPELLING RULES
       Only one	diacritical mark:
	    vowel followed by symbol

       Two diacritical marks:
	    vowel followed by Dau_Mu, Dau_Trang, Dau_Rau then other symbols.

       DD and dd: self-explanatory,
	   the	resulting  case	 is the	same as	the first character of the se-
       quence.

       The Escape_Symbol is provided to	avoid the confusion between  the  dia-
       critical	marks and end-of-sentence symbols.
	    i.e: the question		Anh ddi	dda^u?
		 should	be typed	Anh ddi	dda^u\?
