NAME

roff2ps - transform roff code into ps mode  

SYNOPSIS

[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.
