The Fourth Research Edition Unix Programmer's Manual

This repository maintains the tools for typesetting and making available the Unix Programmer's Manual (Fourth Edition, November 1973). The generated typeset manual is made available in PDF form.

The manual pages and tools are derived from 1973 material unearthed by Dennis Ritchie, and made available through the The Unix Heritage Society. This is the first edition of the manual that was created in troff (typeset) form (rather than using nroff's line-printer formatting). I modernized the old shell scripts and corrected some minor markup glitches through commits that are recorded in this repository. You can find the evolution of the manual pages recorded in the Unix history repository. Furthermore, you can find the evolution of the corresponding facilities on a series of tables available here.
