The next NYC*BUG meeting will be streamed on Dec. 2nd via zoom. We will meet at our usual date & time;  the first Wednesday of the month at 18:45 for gathering & announcements with the talk scheduled to start at 19:00EST. 

James K. Lowden will present "For the Love of Troff", a discussion of the state of Unix
documentation and documentation systems.
James advocates the obvious superiority of mdoc markup for documentation, and demonstrates the continuing miserable state of competing systems and formats. If you are not impressed, you're sure to be startled.

To prepare for the assault talk, you may wish to read his unsubmitted, unpublished, nearly secret paper of the same name,


For an example of the capabilites of the modern GNU troff system (groff), please see his paper on a completely unrelated subject,

Stay safe everyone and please wear a mask.
