     Troff formats text for  a  Graphic  Systems  phototypesetter

     according  to  control lines embedded in the text files.  It

     reads the standard input if no file arguments are given.  An

     argument  of  just  ``-'' refers to the standard input.  The

     non-file option arguments are interpreted as follows:

     +n         Commence typesetting at the first page numbered n

               or larger.

     -n         Stop after page n.

     -sn        Print output in groups of n pages,  stopping  the

               typesetter after each group.

     -nn        First generated (not necessarily printed) page is

               given the number n; simulates ``.pn n''.

     -ran       Set number register a to the value n.

     -mname     Prepends a standard macro file;  simulates  ``.so


     -t         Place output on standard output  instead  of  the


     -f         Refrain from feeding out paper and  stopping  the

               phototypesetter at the end.

     -w         Wait  until  phototypesetter  is  available,   if

               currently busy.

     -a         Send a printable approximation of the results  to

               the standard output.

     -pn        Print all  characters  with  point-size  n  while

               retaining all prescribed spacings and motions.
