GROFF_ME(7)            Miscellaneous Information Manual            GROFF_ME(7)




NAME
       groff_me - troff macros for formatting papers

SYNOPSIS
       groff -me [ options ] file ...
       groff -m me [ options ] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page describes the GNU version of the -me macros, which is
       part of the groff document formatting system.  This version can be used
       with both GNU troff and Unix troff.  This package of troff macro
       definitions provides a canned formatting facility for tech%nical papers
       in various formats.

       The macro requests are defined below.  Many troff requests are unsafe
       in conjunction with this package, however, these requests may be used
       with impunity after the first .pp:

              .bp  begin new page
              .br  break output line here
              .sp n     insert n spacing lines
              .ls n     (line spacing) n=1 single, n=2 double space
              .na  no alignment of right margin
              .ce n     center next n lines
              .ul n     underline next n lines

       Output of the pic, eqn, refer, and tbl preprocessors is acceptable as
       input.
