How can I print man pages to a line printer?
I need to remove the control characters for bold ... etc.

Thanks in advance

Don't have a simple printer to try it, but doesn't

nroff -man -TPRINTERTYPE...
(look at the nroff man pages ;-) )

provide what you want?

Hope this helps,
Patrice.

Hi Rudy.

It is very simple. All you have to do is the following:

$ man xxx | col -b > filename

Then you can print the file in any printer.
