       orig_me - macros	for formatting papers

       nroff -orig_me [	options	] file ...
       troff -orig_me [	options	] file ...

       This  package  of  nroff	 and troff macro definitions provides a	canned
       formatting facility for technical papers	in various formats.  When pro-
       ducing 2-column output on a terminal, filter the	output through col(1).

       The macro requests are defined below.  Many nroff  and  troff  requests
       are  unsafe  in	conjunction with this package, however,	these requests
       may be used with	impunity after the first .pp:

	      .bp     begin new	page
	      .br     break output line	here
	      .sp n   insert n spacing lines
	      .ls n   (line spacing) n=1 single, n=2 double space
	      .na     no alignment of right margin
	      .ce n   center next n lines
	      .ul n   underline	next n lines
	      .sz +n  add n to point size

       Output of the eqn, neqn,	refer, and tbl(1) preprocessors	for  equations
       and tables is acceptable	as input.
