NAME


docbook-to-man — convert DocBook SGML into roff -man macros

SYNOPSIS


docbook-to-man [source.sgml] [>] [destination.1]

DESCRIPTION


The docbook-to-man tool is a batch converter that transforms UNIX-style manpages from the
DocBook SGML DTD into nroff/troff -man macros.

docbook-to-man is the shell command that runs the low-level components to translate a
single DocBook SGML document instance (whose document element is <RefEntry>) into pretty-
much vanilla -man macros, with tables rendered in tbl.

This is not the original version by Fred Dalrymple, but one with the ANS Modifications by
David Bolen (db3l@ans.net).

White space and special characters


If you want to use tabs in your manpage you should use <programlisting>, <literal> or
<screen> and invoke docbook-to-man with INSTANT_OPT set to a tab character. Be aware that
multiple tabs will be collapsed into one.

When you want to collapse white space into one, you should invoke docbook-to-man with
INSTANT_OPT set to a space character.

Special characters like \, ' or . will not be interpreted if you set INSTANT_OPT to a
space or tab character.

ENVIRONMENT


If the variable INSTANT_OPT is not set, the instant(1) is called with the parameter -d by
docbook-to-man. If you don't want this, e.g. if you want to use some special characters
literally in your SGML file, you can set INSTANT_OPT to just a space character:

INSTANT_OPT=" " docbook-to-man src.sgml > dst.1

Note: The better way to use special characters like ^ or > is to write them in the SGML
way, i.e. &caret; or &gt;.
