That's up to you, perhaps .tr.

GNU troff, like Kernighan's, outputs a device independent data format
which a separate command then turns into PostScript, HTML, etc.  With
GNU troff that's grops.

However, rather than use troff and grops directly it is easier to use
the groff command which kicks off these commands, and others that you
might need, in the correct order.
