That could be what he was asking, but since man already does that, I
would read this question as 'How do I remove the backspace formatting?'
I've already given the solution to that.

1. Converting Man Pages to Text Files

Hi,
    I would like to convert some of my man pages to text files. I tried
man -t  to convert them and  it doesn't give me a clean conversion.

                                                    Thanks
                                                                Mike
