MS(VII) 11/6/74 MS(VII) NAME ms - macros for formatting manuscripts SYNOPSIS nroff -ms [ options ] file ... troff -ms [ options ] file ... DESCRIPTION This package of nroff and troff macro definitions provides a canned formatting facility for technical papers. When producing 2-column output on a terminal, its output should be filtered through col (I). The package supports three different formats: BTL technical memorandum with cover sheet, released paper with cover sheet, and an abbreviated `debugging' form without cover sheet. The macro requests are defined in the attached Request Reference. Many nroff and troff requests are unsafe in conjunction with this package, however the requests listed below may be used with impunity after the first .PP. .bp begin new page .br break output line here .sp ninsert n spacing lines .ls n(line spacing) n=1 single, n=2 double space .na no alignment of right margin Output of the eqn, neqn and tbl (I) preprocessors for equations and tables is acceptable as input.
