Roffbib accepts most of the options understood by nroff.1 most importantly the -T flag to specify terminal type.
If abstracts or comments are entered following the %X field key, roffbib will format them into paragraphs for an annotated bibliography. Several %X fields may be given if several annotation paragraphs are desired. The -x flag will suppress the printing of these abstracts.
A user-defined set of macros may be specified after the -m option. There should be a space between the -m and the macro filename. This set of macros will replace the ones defined in /usr/lib/tmac/tmac.bib. The -V flag will send output to the Versatec; the -Q flag will queue output for the phototypesetter.
Four command-line registers control formatting style of the bibliography, much like the number registers of ms.7 The command-line argument -rN1 will number the references starting at one (1). The flag -rV2 will double space the bibliography, while -rV1 will double space references but single space annotation paragraphs. The line length can be changed from the default 6.5 inches to 6 inches with the -rL6i argument, and the page offset can be set from the default of 0 to one inch by specifying -rO1i (capital O, not zero). Note: with the -V and -Q flags the default page offset is already one inch.
