Jump to: navigation, search

colcrt reorganizes text to allow visualization of the output of nroff on terminals without some of the features nroff depends on: reverse linefeeds, half-linefeeds, underlining and overstriking. It is useful on mechanical terminals and printers.

Example

 tbl example.n | nroff -ms | colcrt - | more
