mmroff - Man Page

cross-referencing front end for GNU roff mm macro package


mmroff[-x] groff-argument ...


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.


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

Create or update the cross-reference file and exit.
