troff2null(1) convert troff documents to troffcvt internal format


troff2null [ options ] file ... ]


troff2null converts files written in the troff input language and converts them to the troffcvt internal representation. It works by running the input files through troffcvt and then through tc2null .

troff2null understands the usual troffcvt options. It also understands the additional options listed below:

Enable debugging output.
Cause tc2null to echo token information to stderr as tokens are read from troffcvt.
No execution. Just show the commands that troff2null would execute to process the document.
Don't run the postprocessor (tc2null).
-T title
Specify a title for the document. This can be used for documents that do not contain any recognizable title. If the document does contain a title, it is overridden.

troff2null uses a set of special macros that tell troffcvt how to generate tc2null-specific output that tc2null uses to recognize NULL structural elements. These macros do not work in compatibility mode.
