Homebrew formulae for troff(1) and man(1)

Whether you love man pages or the Troff typesetting system itself, you've come to the right place.

This is a “tap” for Homebrew, the unofficial package manager for macOS. We'll gauchely assume you know what we're talking about. If not, see brew(1) or their online documentation for more info on getting started.

Installing

To grab hold of these formulae, run:

brew tap alhadis/troff

Then install any of them at your leisure:

brew install alhadis/troff/man-db
brew install heirloom-doctools

Note: Some of these formulae are already available from Homebrew's core, but require configuration before use. This tap replaces them with DWIM equivalents, ones which require no PATH-fiddling after installation. A complication of this is that alhadis/troff/ must prefix the formula's name when installed. Others can be installed normally (e.g., heirloom-doctools as illustrated above).

Available formulae

  • dformat: Awk-based preprocessor for data formats, taken from CSTR #142.
  • man-db: The implementation of man(1) widely used on Linux.
  • libpipeline: C library for manipulating pipelines of subprocesses.
  • heirloom-doctools: Modernised troff geared toward high-quality typesetting.
