Have you actually looked at groff.texinfo? A pdf-Version can be found at

Comments (and patches!) to improve this are highly welcome.


Thanks for the pdf. I had a look at the previous version a while ago but a China tour
rudely interrupted my studies of it :-)
I hope that soon I'll be back to learning the differences from old troff and then I'll send you comments. Certainly I would like to see a groff manual written in groff, with plenty of colour and graphics.

Not for colour and graphics sake, but colour can help with "at a glance"-type organization and technical examples can show that this thing is no less than Word but more.
Just if you could increase the 40 kB posting limit a bit, please.

It is a nice little storm you managed to stir up with editors, etc. I've learned a lot, got a few ideas and might just buy X-keys to work with vi to insert groff into documents... It is good that these comments were not cut-off 'cause not that closely related to groff.

Another interesting thing was the memories of typesetters etc. Would like to see a statistics re how young on this list we are. Mine youngness is not secret: 70. Actually one less, but when I say
the word, people just smile: "Oh, yeah..."
