An excellent book, and one that I have used a lot. But nobody can claim that it's up-to-date (it predates groff), and there are many features in groff that weren't in the troff version described. Isn't it sad that nothing more modern is available?

How many people use features of 'groff' that are not in 'troff'?

We use groff with MM for half our corporate reports, i.e. those that are not mandated as Word, and all our (computer generated) invoices and P/Os, and we use no groff specific features as far as I know. And have for 30+ years.
