Name         top

       mmroff - cross-referencing front end for GNU roff mm macro

Synopsis         top

       mmroff [-x] groff-argument ...

       mmroff --help

       mmroff --version

Description         top

       mmroff is a simple wrapper for groff, used to expand cross
       references in mm; see groff_mm(7).  It runs groff with the -mm
       option twice, first with -z and -rRef=1 to populate cross-
       reference and index files with their corresponding entries, and
       then again to produce the document.  It also handles the
       inclusion of PostScript images with the PIC macro.  Documents
       that do not use these features of groff mm (the INITI, IND, INDP,
       INITR, SETR, GETHN, GETPN, GETR, GETST, and PIC macros) do not
       require mmroff.

Options         top

       --help displays a usage message, while --version shows version
       information; both exit afterward.

       -x     Create or update the cross-reference file and exit.

Environment         top

       Normally, the path separator in environment variables ending with
       PATH is the colon; this may vary depending on the operating
       system.  For example, Windows uses a semicolon instead.

              Locate groff commands in these directories, followed by
              those in PATH.  If not set, the installation directory of
              GNU roff executables, /usr/local/bin, is searched before
