GROG(1)                                                                                              GROG(1)

       grog - guess options for groff command

       grog [ -option ... ] [ files ... ]

       grog  reads  files  and  guesses  which of the groff(1) options -e, -man, -me, -mm, -mom, -ms, -mdoc,
       -mdoc-old, -p, -R, -g, -G, -s, and -t are required for printing files, and prints the  groff  command
       including  those  options  on the standard output.  A filename of - is taken to refer to the standard
       input.  If no files are specified the standard input will be read.  Any  specified  options  will  be
       included  in the printed command.  No space is allowed between options and their arguments.  The only
       options recognized are -C (which is also passed on) to enable compatibility mode, and -v to print the
       version number.

       For example,

              `grog -Tdvi`

       will guess the appropriate command to print and then run it after adding the -Tdvi option.
