Ugrind readme


Ugrind is a pre-processor for troff which highlight source code. It is a hack of vfontedpr, the utility used by the mostly forgotten vgrind script.

Build and install

To build and install, edit the file config.mk from the root directory, and run :

make install

In some circumstances, you might need utroff tools themselves to build the manual pages. In that case, build and install binaries before manual pages like this :

make installbin
make installman

You can uninstall files and clean the working directory :

make uninstall
make clean

For a more complete description of the build process, look at the README in the root directory.


Ugrind and its man page are distributed under the original BSD license. The code which highlight troff language, written from scratch, is distributed under a two clause BSD license. The language description file (ugrindefs) is distributed under the CDDL 1.0 license.
