Re: [Groff] table column widths

Is it possible to specify column widths in a table as a proportion of
the linewidth? I've tried using the line width register to calculate a
width for a column:
but I've no experience of groff and, not surprisingly, that didn't

If ".H" is really the number register you're using, try w(\n[.H]/3u)
(putting brackets around the name).

If I could do more than code my way out of a paper bag, I'd write
a patch for tbl that allowed it to specify a column width as a
percentage of line width....
