       deroff - Deletes neqn, nroff, and tbl constructs

       deroff [-i  | -l] [-kpuw] [-ma  | -me  | -mm  | -ms] file...

       deroff [-i  | -l] [-kpuw] -mm  -ml  file...

       The  deroff  command  reads  the	 specified files (or standard input by
       default), removes all  nroff  requests,	macro  calls,  backslash  con‐
       structs, eqn constructs (between and lines and between delimiters), and
       tbl descriptions, replacing many of them with spaces  or	 blank	lines,
       and writes the remainder of the file to standard output.

       Suppresses  processing  of included files (.so and Keeps blocks of text
       specified by requests or macros; for example, the request.   Suppresses
       processing  of  included files whose names begin with /usr/lib (such as
       macro files in /usr/lib/tmac).  Interprets man macros only.  Interprets
       me  macros only.	 Ignores mm macros and deletes mm list structures. The
       -mm option must be specified with this option.  Interprets  ms  and  mm
       macros  only.   Interprets  ms macros only.  Performs special paragraph
       processing.  Removes _\b and \b	in  underlined	and  boldfaced	words.
       Automatically  sets  the	 -w  option.  Formats output into a word list,
       containing one word per line, with all other characters deleted.

       In text, a word is any string that contains at least two letters and is
       composed of letters, digits, ampersands (&), and apostrophes (').  In a
       macro call, a word is a string that begins with at  least  two  letters
       and  contains  a	 total	of at least three letters.  Delimiters are any
       characters other than letters, digits, ampersands, and apostrophes.

       Trailing ampersands and apostrophes are removed from words.

       The deroff command normally follows chains of included files  (.so  and
       requests) and processes those files.  If a file was already included, a
       naming it is ignored and a
