DEROFF(1)                                               DEROFF(1)

       deroff - remove troff and preprocessor constructs

       deroff [-w] {file(s)}

       deroff  reads  in  the  named  files (or stdin if none are
       given) and strips out troff  constructs  and  macros.  The
       preprocessor  (eqn,  tbl,  pic, grap, and vgrind) sections
       are removed entirely.  The resulting output, suitable  for
       spelling, is sent to stdout.

       -w     output  a word-by-word list, delimited by newlines.

       troff(1), eqn(1), pic(1), grap(1), vgrind(1).

       deroff is not a full troff(1) interpreter;  in  particular
       it  doesn't  know  how  to  expand macros and how to treat
       m[mse]'s registers.
       Macros are assumed to end with ..  and are simply skipped.
       deroff  can be fooled with circular .nx requests.  The .so
       request deepness is limited.
