       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

nroff [ -CchipStUv ] [ -dcs ] [ -Mdir ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ]
             [ -rcn ] [ -Tname ] [ file ... ]

       The nroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.  Only ascii,
       latin1, utf8, and cp1047 are valid arguments for the -T option,
       selecting the output encoding emitted by grotty, groff's TTY output
       device.  If an invalid or no -T option is given, nroff checks the
       current locale to select a default output device.  It first tries the
       locale program, then the environment variables LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, and
       LANG, and finally the LESSCHARSET environment variable.

       The -h and -c options are equivalent to grotty's options -h (using tabs
       in the output) and -c (using the old output scheme instead of SGR
       escape sequences).  The -d, -C, -i, -M, -m, -n, -o, and -r options have
       the effect described in troff(1).  In addition, nroff silently ignores
       the options -e, -q, and -s (which are not implemented in troff).
       Options -p (pic), -t (tbl), -S (safer), and -U (unsafe) are passed to
       groff.  -v shows the version number.

              A colon separated list of directories in which to search for the
              groff executable before searching in PATH.  If unset, `/usr/bin'
              is used.

       This shell script is basically intended for use with man(1), so
       warnings are suppressed.  nroff-style character definitions (in the
       file tty-char.tmac) are also loaded to emulate unrepresentable glyphs.
