       nroff - Formats text

       nroff [option...] [file...]

       Options can appear in any order as long as they precede any file names.
       Prints only pages whose page numbers appear in the comma-separated list
       of  numbers  and	 ranges specified in the list argument. A range of N-M
       means pages N through M.	 An argument of the form  -N  means  from  the
       beginning  of  the text up to page N.  An argument of the form N- means
       from page N to the end of the text.  Directs nroff to use N as the num‐
       ber for the first generated page.  Stops every N pages.	The nroff com‐
       mand halts after formatting N pages to allow paper reloading or	chang‐
       ing  and resumes when it receives a new line signal.  The default for N
       is 1.  Prepends the macro  file	/usr/share/lib/tmac/  to  the
       files  specified in the nroff command line.  Sets register a to N.  The
       register specification is limited to a single  character.   Reads  from
       standard input after the specified list of files is exhausted.  Invokes
       the simultaneous input-output mode of the .rd request.  Prepares output
       for  the specified terminal.  The name argument refers to tabname files
       in /usr/share/lib/term.	The default name is lpr,  which	 refers	 to  a
       dumb  10-pitch printer with no halfline or upline capability.  Produces
       equally-spaced words in adjusted lines, using full terminal resolution.
       Uses  output  tabs during horizontal spacing to speed output and reduce
       output character count.	Tab settings are assumed  to  be  every	 eight
       nominal character widths.

       The  nroff  command formats text in the specified files for typewriter-
       like devices.  If no file argument is present, nroff reads  from	 stan‐
       dard input.  An argument consisting of a single minus sign (-) is taken
       to be a file name corresponding to standard input.
