deroff [options] [files]

Remove all nroff/troff requests and macros, backslash escape sequences, and tbl and eqn constructs from the named files.



Suppress text that appears on macro lines (i.e., paragraphs will print but headings might be stripped).


Same as -mm, but also deletes lists created by mm macros; e.g., .BL/.LE, .VL/.LE constructs. (Nested lists are handled poorly.)


Output the text as a list, one word per line. See also example under xargs.
