NAME
       nroff - emulate nroff command with groff

SYNOPSIS
       nroff [ -h ] [ -i ] [ -mname ] [ -nnum ] [ -olist ] [ -p ] [ -rcn ] [ -S ] [ -t ] [ -Tname ] [ -U ] [ -v ]
             [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION
       The nroff script emulates the nroff command using groff.  Only ascii, ascii8, latin1, utf8, nippon, and  cp1047
       are valid arguments for the -T option.  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 -C, -i, -n,  -m,  -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 imple-
       mented in troff).  Options -p (pic), -t (tbl), -S (safer), and -U (unsafe) are passed to groff.  -v  shows  the
       version number.

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

NOTES
       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.
