The manpages are written in groff. More specifically, they are written in a format that may be formatted by the `mdoc' macros of groff; the set of groff macros described in the groff_mdoc(7) manpage. See my other post about using groff and a specially formatted `input file' to produce text output similar to the manpage look & feel :) The `mdoc' macro package is just _one_ of the available sets of macros for formatting text with groff. Check out the groff wiki at http://www.port.de/cgi-bin/groff/GroffMacroPackages for information about the standard macro packages included with groff. The `extras' page at http://www.port.de/cgi-bin/groff/GroffExtras has pointers to other, non-standard macro packages. This may be a bit interesting too. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
