Puffy mdocml = mandoc — UNIX manpage compiler — current version 1.13.1 (August 10, 2014)

The mandoc UNIX manpage compiler toolset

mandoc is a suite of tools compiling mdoc, the roff macro language of choice for BSD manual pages, and man, the predominant historical language for UNIX manuals. It is small, ISO C, ISC-licensed, and quite fast.

The main component of the toolset is the mandoc utility program, based on the libmandoc validating compiler, to format output for UNIX terminals (with support for wide-character locales), XHTML, HTML, PostScript, and PDF.

mandoc has predominantly been developed on OpenBSD and is both an OpenBSD and a BSD.lv project. We strive to support all interested free operating systems, in particular NetBSD, DragonFly, FreeBSD, illumos, Minix 3, and GNU/Linux, as well as all systems running the pkgsrc portable package build system.
