Description         top

       pdfmom is a wrapper around groff(1) that facilitates the
       production of PDF documents from files formatted with the mom

       pdfmom prints to the standard output, so output must usually be
       redirected to a destination file.  The size of the final PDF can
       be reduced by piping the output through ps2pdf(1).

       If called with the -Tpdf option (which is the default), pdfmom
       processes files using groff's native PDF driver, gropdf(1).  If
       -Tps is given, processing is passed over to pdfroff, which uses
       groff's PostScript driver.  In either case, multiple runs of the
       source file are performed in order to satisfy any forward
       references in the document.

       pdfmom accepts all the same options as groff.  If -Tps is given,
       the options associated with pdfroff are accepted as well.  Please
       note that when pdfmom calls pdfroff, the
              -mpdfmark -mom --no-toc
       options are implied and should not be given on the command line.
       Equally, it is not necessary to supply the -mom or -m mom options
       when -Tps is absent.

       PDF integration with the mom macros is discussed in full in the
       manual “Producing PDFs with groff and mom”, which was itself
       produced with pdfmom.

       If called with the -v option, pdfmom simply displays its version
       information and exits.
