roff2x (1)

Name

roff2x - transform roff code into x mode

Synopsis

roff2x [ groffer_option ....]  [--] [ filespec ....]

roff2x -h|--help

roff2x -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.
