GROFF_CHAR(7)                                       GROFF_CHAR(7)

NAME
       groff_char - groff character names

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual  page  lists the standard groff input charac-
       ters.  Only the characters  that  are  available  for  the
       device  that  is being used to print this manual page will
       be displayed.  The Input code column applies to characters
       which  can be input with a single character, and gives the
       ISO Latin-1 code of that input character.  The  PostScript
       name  column gives the usual PostScript name of the output
       character.

       The ISO Latin-1 no-break space (code 0240 octal) is equiv-
       alent to \(space).  All other ISO Latin-1 characters print
       as themselves with the following exceptions: `  prints  as
       `, ' prints as '; the corresponding ISO Latin-1 characters
       can be  obtained  with  \`  and  \(aq.   The  ISO  Latin-1
       `Hyphen, Minus Sign' (code 45) prints as a hyphen; a minus
       sign can be obtained with \-.   The  ISO  Latin-1  `Tilde'
       (code  126)  prints as ~; the larger glyph can be obtained
       with \(ti.  The ISO Latin-1 `Circumflex Accent' (code  94)
       prints as ^; a larger glyph can be obtained with \(ha.
