    DESCRIPTION

           This manual page lists the standard groff input characters.  The output
           characters in this document will look different depending on which out-
           put  device  was  chosen  (with option -T for the man(1) program or the
           roff formatter).  Only the characters that are available for the device
           that  is being used to print or view this manual page will be displayed
           (the device currently used is 'utf8').
    
           In the actual version, groff provides only 8-bit characters for  direct
           input  and  named  characters  for further glyphs.  On ASCII platforms,
           character codes in the range 0 to 127  (decimal)  represent  the  usual
           7-bit ASCII characters, while codes between 127 and 255 are interpreted
           as the corresponding characters in the Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1)  code  set.
           On EBCDIC platforms, only the code page cp1047 is supported (which con-
           tains the same characters as Latin-1).  It  is  rather  straightforward
           (for the experienced user) to set up other 8bit encodings like Latin-2;
           since groff will use Unicode in the next major version,  no  additional
           encodings are provided.
    
           All  roff  systems  provide the concept of named characters.  In tradi-
           tional roff systems, only names of length 2 were used, while groff also
           provides  support for longer names.  It is strongly suggested that only
           named characters are used for all characters outside of the 7-bit ASCII
           range.
    
           Some  of the predefined groff escape sequences (with names of length 1)
           also produce single characters; these exist for historical  reasons  or
           are printable versions of syntactical characters.  They include \\, \',
           \', \-, \., and \e; see groff(7).
    
           In groff, all of these different types of characters can be tested pos-
           itively with the .if c conditional.
    
    
    

    REFERENCE

           In this section, the characters in groff are specified in tabular form.
           The meaning of the columns is as follows.
    
           Output shows how the character  is  printed  for  the  current  device;
                  although this can have quite a different shape on other devices,
                  it always represents the same glyph.
    
           Input name
                  specifies how the character is input either directly by a key on
                  the keyboard, or by a groff escape sequence.
    
           Input code
                  applies  to  characters which can be input with a single charac-
                  ter, and gives the ISO Latin-1 decimal code of that input  char-
                  acter.  Note that this code is equivalent to the lowest 256 Uni-
                  code characters; (including 7-bit ASCII in the range 0  to 127).
    
           PostScript name
    
           97-122 Lower case letters a-z (print as themselves).
    
           127    Control character (prints as itself).
    
           The  remaining  ranges constitute the printable, non-alphanumeric ASCII
           characters; only these are listed below.  As can be seen in  the  table
           below,  most  of  these characters print as themselves; the only excep-
           tions are the following characters:
    
           `      the ISO Latin-1 'Grave Accent' (code 96) prints  as  ',  a  left
                  single quotation mark,
    
           '      the ISO Latin-1 'Apostrophe' (code 39) prints as ', a right sin-
                  gle quotation mark; the corresponding ISO Latin-1 characters can
                  be obtained with \' and \(aq.
    
           -      the  ISO  Latin-1  'Hyphen,  Minus  Sign'  (code 45) prints as a
                  hyphen; a minus sign can be obtained with \-.
    
           ~      the ISO Latin-1  'Tilde'  (code 126);  a  larger  glyph  can  be
                  obtained with \(ti.
    
           ^      the  ISO  Latin-1  'Circumflex Accent' (code 94); a larger glyph
                  can be obtained with \(ha.

           plement.

                  the  C1  Controls;  they  print as themselves, but the effect is
                  mostly undefined.
    
           160    the ISO Latin-1 no-break space is mapped to  '\ ',  the  escaped
                  space character.
    
           173    the  soft  hyphen  control  character (prints as itself).  groff
                  never use this character for output (thus it is omitted  in  the
                  table below); the input character 173 is mapped onto \%.
    
           The  remaining ranges (161-172, 174-255), called the Latin-1 Supplement
           in  Unicode,  are  printable  characters  that  print  as   themselves.
           Although  they  can  be specified directly with the keyboard on systems
           with a Latin-1 code page, it is better to  use  their  named  character
           equivalent; see next section.

           In groff, each 8bit input character can also referred to  by  the  con-

           between 0 and 255 without leading zeros.  They are  mapped  onto  glyph
           entities using the .trin request.  Moreover, new character names can be
           created by the .char request; see groff(7).
