       grotty [ -hfbuodBUv ] [ -Fdir ] [ files...  ]

       It  is  possible  to have whitespace between the -F option
       and its parameter.


       grotty translates the output of  GNU  troff  into  a  form
       suitable  for  typewriter-like  devices.   Normally grotty
       should be invoked  by  using  the  groff  command  with  a
       -Tascii,  -Tascii8, -Tlatin1, -Tnippon or -Tutf8 option on
       ASCII based systems, and with  -Tcp1047  on  EBCDIC  based
       hosts.   If no files are given, grotty will read the stan­
       dard input.  A filename of - will  also  cause  grotty  to
       read  the  standard input.  Output is written to the stan­
       dard output.

       Normally grotty  prints  a  bold  character  c  using  the
       sequence  `c  BACKSPACE c' and a italic character c by the
       sequence `_ BACKSPACE c'.  These  sequences  can  be  dis­
       played on a terminal by piping through ul(1).  Pagers such
       as more(1) or less(1)  are  also  able  to  display  these
       sequences.   Use either -B or -U when piping into less(1);
       use -b when piping into more(1).  There is no need to fil­
       ter  the  output through col(1) since grotty never outputs
       reverse line feeds.

       The font description file may contain a command

              internalname n

       where n is a decimal integer.  If the 01 bit in n is  set,
       then the font will be treated as an italic font; if the 02
       bit is set, then it will be treated as a bold  font.   The
       code  field  in  the font description field gives the code
       which will be used to output the character.  This code can
       also be used in the \N escape sequence in troff.


       -Fdir  Prepend  directory  dir/devname  to the search path
              for font and device description files; name is  the
              name  of the device, usually ascii, ascii8, latin1,
              utf8, nippon or cp1047.

       -h     Use  horizontal  tabs  in  the  output.   Tabs  are
              assumed to be set every 8 columns.

       -f     Use  form feeds in the output.  A form feed will be
              output at the end of each page that has  no  output
              on its last line.

       -b     Suppress  the  use of overstriking for bold charac­
              least one zero argument (and so are either horizon­
              tal or vertical) using -, | and + characters.

       -v     Print the version number.

              Device description file for cp1047 device.

              Font description file for font F of cp1047  device.

              Macros for use with grotty.

              Additional  klugdey  character  definitions for use
              with grotty.

       Note that on EBCDIC  hosts,  only  files  for  the  cp1047
       device will be installed.
