MDOC.SAMPLES (7) NetBSD Miscellaneous Information Manual MDOC.SAMPLES (7) NAME mdoc.samples —tutorial sampler for writing BSD manuals with −mdoc SYNOPSIS man mdoc.samples DESCRIPTION Atutorial sampler for writing BSD manual pages with the −mdoc macro package, a content−based and domain−based formatting package for troff(1). Its predecessor, the -man package (see groff_man(7)), addressed page layout leaving the manipulation of fonts and other typesetting details to the individual author. In −mdoc, page layout macros make upthe page structure domain which consists of macros for titles, section headers, displays and lists. Essentially items which affect the physical position of text on a formatted page. In addition to the page structure domain, there are two more domains, the manual domain and the general text domain. The general text domain is defined as macros which perform tasks such as quoting or emphasizing pieces of text. The manual domain is defined as macros that are a subset of the day to day informal language used to describe commands, routines and related BSD files. Macros in the manual domain handle command names, command line arguments and options, function names, function parameters, pathnames, variables, cross references to other manual pages, and so on. These domain items have value for both the author and the future user of the manual page. It is hoped the consistency gained across the manual set will provide easier translation to future documentation tools. Throughout the UNIX manual pages, a manual entry is simply referred to as a man page, regardless of actual length and without sexist intention. GETTING STARTED Since a tutorial document is normally read when a person desires to use the material immediately, the assumption has been made that the user of this document may be impatient. The material presented in the remainder of this document is outlined as follows: 1. TROFF IDIOSYNCRASIES Macro Usage. Passing Space Characters in an Argument. Trailing Blank Space Characters (a warning). Escaping Special Characters. 2. THE ANAT OMY OF A MAN PAGE Amanual page template. 3. INTRODUCTION OF TITLE MACROS. 4. INTRODUCTION OF MANUAL AND GENERAL TEXT DOMAINS. What’s inaname.... General Syntax. 5. MANUAL DOMAIN Addresses. Arguments. Configuration Declarations (section four only). Command Modifier. Defined Variables. Errno’s (Section two only). Environment Variables. NetBSD 3.0 April 16, 2003 1
