roff2ps(1)                 General Commands Manual                roff2ps(1)

NAME         top

       roff2ps - transform roff code into ps mode

SYNOPSIS         top

       roff2ps [ groffer_option ....]  [--] [ filespec ....]

       roff2ps -h|--help

       roff2ps -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 inter‐
       nally 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.
