NAME

       pdfmom - Produce PDF documents using the mom macro set


SYNOPSIS

       [groff options] files ...  [groff options] files ...


DESCRIPTION

       pdfmom is a wrapper around groff that facilitates the production of PDF
       documents from files formatted with the mom macros.

       pdfmom prints to stdout, so output must be redirected to a  destination
       file.   The  size  of the final PDF can be reduced by piping the output
       through ps2pdf.

       If called with the -Tpdf option (which is  the  default),  pdfmom  pro-
       cesses  files  using  groff's  native  PDF  driver, gropdf.  If -Tps is
       given, processing is passed over to pdfroff, which uses  groff's  Post-
       Script  driver.   In  either case, multiple runs of the source file are
       peformed in order to satisfy any forward references in the document.

       pdfmom accepts all the same options as groff.  If -Tps  is  given,  the
       options associated with pdfroff are accepted as well.  Please note that
       when pdfmom calls pdfroff, the

              -mpdfmark -mom --no-toc

       options are implied and should  not  be  given  on  the  command  line.
       Equally,  it is not necessary to supply the -mom or -m mom options when
       -Tps is absent.

       PDF integration with the mom macros is discussed in  full  in  the  PDF
       manual, Producing PDFs with groff and mom.


BUGS

       pdfmom sometimes issues warnings of the type

         ...: can't transparently output node at top level

       This is more of an annoyance than a bug, and may safely be ignored.
