A Set of Troff macros for Presentation Slides

I originally got this collection of macros from Sape Mullender years ago, and have used them in many occasions since then.

At the moment there isn’t much documentation, but there isn’t much to document either. See the sample file for an illustration of how to use it.

The mkfile is for convenience and contains some really handy rules to use while preparing your presentation.


This has been used mostly in native Plan 9, using Plan 9’s troff, but should mostly work fine with p9p or 9base, some of the mkfile rules might need some minor adaptations.

Other macros

There are more sets of troff macros for presentations developed by others, I might add them when I have time to look for them.
