motif-2.0 man pages

Post by Franz Jos » Sat, 29 Apr 1995 04:00:00


is there something like a script of macro package to be able
to use Motif-2.0 manual pages with Linux ?

At least with groff-1.09 and tmac.andoc correct formatting
isn't possible.

1. Standard man pages to "Catted" man pages!

To Anyone Interested:

        How does one take a standard "troff"ed (?) man page that comes
with a package off the net (ending in .1, .2, etc) and turn in into a
compressed, "cat"ted man page (ending in .1.Z, .2.Z, etc) that are
stored in the directory /usr/man/catN (N = 1,2,3,...) that can be read
by the standard man utility that comes with the SLS distribution?  I'm
sure that this is trivial to do, and is probably written down
SOMEWHERE, but I've got only so many hours a day I can spend reading
FAQs and HOWTOs.  Thanx in advance...
