http://www.gnu.org/software/groff/

The groff-perl package contains the parts of the groff text processor
package that require Perl. These include the afmtodit (font processor
for creating PostScript font files), groffer (tool for displaying groff
files), grog (utility that can be used to automatically determine groff
command-line options), chem (groff preprocessor for producing chemical
structure diagrams), mmroff (reference preprocessor) and roff2dvi
roff2html roff2pdf roff2ps roff2text roff2x (roff code converters).

General Commands (Section 1)
afmtodit
afmtodit creates a font file for use with groff, grops, and gropdf. afmtodit is written in perl; you must have perl version 5.004 or newer installed in order to...
chem
chem produces chemical structure diagrams. Today's version is best suited for organic chemistry (bonds, rings). The chem program is a groff preprocessor like...
glilypond
glilypond transforms sheet music written in the lilypond language into the groff(7) language using the .PSPIC request, such that groff(1) can transform it into...
gperl
This is a preprocesor for groff(1). It allows to add perl(7) code into groff(7) files. The result of a Perl part can be stored in groff strings or numerical...
gpinyin
This is a preprocesor for groff(1). It allows to add the Chinese European-like language Pinyin into groff(7) files.
groffer
The groffer program is the easiest way to use groff(1). It can display arbitrary documents written in the groff language, see groff(7), or other roff languages...
grog
grog reads the input (file names or standard input) and guesses which of the groff(1) options are needed to perform the input with the groff program.
gropdf
gropdf translates the output of GNU troff to PDF. Normally gropdf should be invoked by using the groff command with a -Tpdf option. If no files are given...
mmroff
mmroff is a simple preprocessor for groff, it is used for expanding cross references in mm, see groff_mm(7). groff is executed twice, first with -z and -rRef=1...
pdfmom
pdfmom is a wrapper around groff that facilitates the production of PDF documents from files formatted with the mom macros. pdfmom prints to stdout, so output...
roff2dvi
roff2dvi transforms roff code into dvi mode. Print the result to standard output. There are more of these programs for generating other formats of roff input.
roff2html
roff2html transforms roff code into html mode. Print the result to standard output. There are more of these programs for generating other formats of roff input.
roff2pdf
roff2pdf transforms roff code into pdf mode. Print the result to standard output. There are more of these programs for generating other formats of roff input.
roff2ps
roff2ps transforms roff code into ps mode. Print the result to standard output. There are more of these programs for generating other formats of roff input.
roff2text
roff2text transforms roff code into text mode. Print the result to standard output. There are more of these programs for generating other formats of roff input.
roff2x
roff2x transforms roff code into X mode corresponding to the groff devices X*; this mode is suitable for gxditview(1). Print the result to standard output...
