colcrt - filter nroff output for CRT previewing SYNOPSIS
Colcrt provides virtual half-line and reverse line feed sequences for terminals without such capability, and on which overstriking is destructive. Half-line characters and underlining (changed to dashing `-') are placed on new lines in between the normal output lines.
Cause all half-lines to be printed, effectively dou- ble spacing the output. Normally, a minimal space output format is used which will suppress empty lines. The program never suppresses two consecutive empty lines, however. The -2 option is useful for sending output to the line printer when the output contains superscripts and subscripts which would oth- erwise be invisible.
A typical use of colcrt would be
tbl exum2.n | nroff -ms | colcrt - | more SEE ALSO
Should fold underlines onto blanks even with the - option so that a true underline character would show.
Can't back up more than 102 lines.
Lines are trimmed to 132 characters.
Some provision should be made for processing superscripts and subscripts in documents which are already double-spaced. HISTORY
The colcrt command appeared in 3.0 BSD .
