NAME

groff_mom - groff `mom' macros  

SYNOPSIS

groff -mom [ files... ]
groff -m mom [ files... ]  

DESCRIPTION

mom ([lq]my own macros[rq], [lq]my other macros[rq], [lq]maximum overdrive macros[rq], ...) is a macro set for groff, designed primarily to format documents for PostScript output.

mom provides two categories of macros: macros for typesetting and macros for document processing. The typesetting macros provide access to groff's typesetting power in ways that are simpler to master and to use than groff's primitives. The document processing macros provide customizable markup [lq]tags[rq] that allow the user to design and output professional-looking documents with a minimum of typesetting intervention.

mom comes with her own (very) complete documentation in HTML format.
