NAMEgroff_char - groff character names
DESCRIPTIONThis manual page lists the standard groff input characters. Only the characters that are available for the device that is being used to print or view this manual page will be displayed. The Input code column applies to characters which can be input with a single character, and gives the ISO Latin-1 code of that input character. The PostScript namecolumn gives the usual PostScript name of the output character.
The ISO Latin-1 no-break space (code 0240 octal) is equivalent to \(space). All other ISO Latin-1 characters print as themselves with the following exceptions: ` prints as `, ' prints as '; the corresponding ISO Latin-1 characters can be obtained with \` and \(aq. The ISO Latin-1 `Hyphen, Minus Sign' (code 45) prints as a hyphen; a minus sign can be obtained with \-. The ISO Latin-1 `Tilde' (code 126) prints as ~; the larger glyph can be obtained with \(ti. The ISO Latin-1 `Circumflex Accent' (code 94) prints as ^; a larger glyph can be obtained with \(ha.
