Name         top

       roff2text - transform roff code into text mode

Synopsis         top

       roff2text [groffer-option ...] [--] [filespec ...]

       roff2text -h
       roff2text --help

       roff2text -v
       roff2text --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.
