- demandoc [-w] [file ...]
By default, demandoc parses standard input and outputs only text nodes, preserving line and column position. Escape sequences are omitted from the output.
Its arguments are as follows:
- Output a word list. This outputs each word of text on its own line. A "word", in this case, refers to whitespace-delimited terms beginning with at least two letters and not consisting of any escape sequences. Words have their leading and trailing punctuation (double-quotes, sentence punctuation, etc.) stripped.
- file ...
- The input files.
If a document is not well-formed, it is skipped.
The -i, -k, -m, and -p flags are silently discarded for calling compatibility with the historical deroff.
EXIT STATUSThe demandoc utility exits with one of the following values:
- No errors occurred.
- An operating system error occurred, for example memory exhaustion or an error accessing input files. Such errors cause demandoc to exit at once, possibly in the middle of parsing or formatting a file. The output databases are corrupt and should be removed .
EXAMPLESThe traditional usage of demandoc is for spell-checking manuals on BSD. This is accomplished as follows (assuming British spelling):
- $ demandoc -w file.1 | spell -b
HISTORYdemandoc replaces the historical deroff utility for handling modern man(7) and mdoc(7) documents.
