NAME
     nroff  -  format text

SYNOPSIS
     nroff [ +n ] [ -n ] [ -nn ] [ -ran ] [ -mx ] [ -s ] [ -h ] [
     -q ] files

DESCRIPTION
     Nroff formats text according to control  lines  embedded  in
     the  text  files.  Nroff reads the standard input if no file
     arguments are given.  An argument of just  ``-''  refers  to
     the  standard  input.  The non-file option arguments are in-
     terpreted as follows:

     +n        Output commences at the first page whose page num-
               ber is n or larger.

     -n        Printing stops after page n.

     -nn       First  generated (not necessarily printed) page is
               given number n; simulates ``.pn n''.

     -ran      Set number register to the value n.

     -mname    Prepends a standard macro  file;  simulates  ``.so
               /usr/lib/tmac.name''.

     -s        Stop  prior  to each page to permit paper loading.
               Printing is restarted by typing a `newline'  char-
               acter.

     -h        Spaces  are  replaced  where possible with tabs to
               speed up output (or reduce the size of the  output
               file).

     -q        Prompt  names  for  insertions are not printed and
               the bell character is sent instead; the  insertion
               is not echoed.
