Mac OS X Port of the Heirloom Project

The project homepage is http://heirloom.sourceforge.net/ where you will find the source archives, documentation and other infos.

This port of the heirloom tools uses the users default encoding, eg en_US.ISO8859-1. You can switch the encoding on the fly by setting the environment variable 'HEIRLOOMENC', this allows to work with different encodings at the same time. Check $HEIRLOOM/5bin/5 and $HEIRLOOM/etc/5.rc for more details.

Heirlooms troff typesetter supports a wide range of UTF-8 glyphs and Truetype/Opentype fonts. There are several tools available to convert the standard Mac fonts into TTF format. After conversion place them into /usr/local/share/fonts/TTF.

For european users troff implements the '.mediasize a4' request to generate DIN A4 pages instead of the default US letter.
