roff2pdf - transform roff code into pdf mode




[ groffer_option...] [ filespec...] -h | --help -v | --version

The options -v and  --version print the version information of the program to standard output and exit. The options -h and --help print a usage information of the program to standard output and stop the program instantly.

All other options are assumed to be  groffer options. They are internally passed to  groffer. They override the behavior of the program. The options are optional, they can be omitted.

The  filespec arguments correspond to the  filespec arguments of  groffer. So they are either the names of existing, readable files or - for standard input, or the name of a man page or a  groffer(1) man page search pattern. If no  filespec is specified standard input is assumed automatically.
