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 technical papers in various formats.

       The  macro  requests  are defined below.  Many troff requests are unsafe in conjunction with this package, how-
       ever, 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.
