The README file contains the information needed to get the groff package, report bugs, and contact the developers. - The man-page of each program (section 1) is kept in the source directory of the program. - The man-pages for the other sections are found in `src/man'. - Documentation in other formats are located in the `doc' directory, including the groff info file, tutorials, and manuals. 4) The roff parser The parsing of the roff language is done by troff. The input is converted to tokens in `src/roff/troff/input.cpp' and transformed into `nodes' by `src/roff/troff/env.cpp' and `src/roff/troff/node.cpp'. From these, the intermediate output is generated (also in `node.cpp'). 5) Postprocessing The parser for the intermediate output and the postprocessing is in `src/libs/libdriver/input.cpp'. This is used by all postprocessors.
