The easiest way to use Postscript is `groffer' with the option `--ps'.  A
viewer is started automatically if you are in X Window.  Try things like

  groffer --ps some_roff_file

for viewing in a Postscript viewer or 

  groffer --pdf some_roff_file

for viewing in a PDF viewer.  All needed `groff' options are determined and
performed automatically.  If you want to see the Postscript source without  a
viewer use

  groffer --ps --source file_or_man_page

`groffer' is part of `groff'  since version
