I am just a casual dabbler who is somehow fascinated by text processing

I am using neatroff - It seems to be the most actively developed and has some nice modern features like paragraph-at-once formatting and utf8 support out of the box.

Having said that, it seems that all troff implementations like plan9 troff or groff itself, seem to have no canonical, "all-encontained" documentation. All seems to derive from .. ?

So my question is:

* What would be a good starting point (tutorial) into troff and its core principles?

* What is the canonical documentation of troff all the existing implementations seem to derive from and describe their deltas in their respective documentation?

Thank you!
