Groff plugin

Description

This plugin enables you to use Groff. Groff is a document typesetter

Dependencies

  • Groff
  • ImageMagick (used for converting the file generated by groff to a png)

Compatibility

Works on XP with 1.9 and probably 2.0

Might not work on Windows Vista. The grops postprocessor (part of Groff) is not working for me on Vista even with UAC disabled. (NOTE: The cygwin version of grops works fine on Vista.) The dvi postprocessor does work on Windows Vista but will only create greyscale images.

Install

Save the attached GroffClBridge.py to your Wikidpad/user_extensions file.

Or when using Windows Vista try GroffClBridgeDvi.py
