    Command:

    colcrt

    
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         Colcrt provides virtual half-line and reverse line feed sequences for
         terminals without such capability, and on which overstriking is destruc-
         tive.  Half-line characters and underlining (changed to dashing '-') are
         placed on new lines in between the normal output lines.
    
         Available options:
    
         -       Suppress all underlining.  This option is especially useful for
                 previewing allboxed tables from tbl(1).
    
         -2      Causes all half-lines to be printed, effectively double spacing
                 the output.  Normally, a minimal space output format is used
                 which will suppress empty lines.  The program never suppresses
                 two consecutive empty lines, however.  The -2 option is useful
                 for sending output to the line printer when the output contains
                 superscripts and subscripts which would otherwise be invisible.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLES

         A typical use of colcrt would be
    
         tbl exum2.n | nroff -ms | colcrt - | more
    
    
    

    SEE ALSO

         nroff(1), troff(1), col(1), more(1), ul(1)
    
    
    

    BUGS

         Should fold underlines onto blanks even with the '-' option so that a
         true underline character would show.
    
         Can't back up more than 102 lines.
    
         General overstriking is lost; as a special case '|' overstruck with '-'
         or underline becomes '+'.
    
         Lines are trimmed to 132 characters.
    
         Some provision should be made for processing superscripts and subscripts
         in documents which are already double-spaced.
