comment troff to PDF conversion
@EmanuelBerg: I am looking for a way to extract the textual contents retaining formatting information and obviously the images from these files, which should be readable to users without any programming knowledge. These are very old scholarly archives and need to be re-digitalized. As PDF is widely used open standard and there's lot of tools present to manipulate with, so I choose that. It might be html/xhtml/xml also.

@Renan: That was my assumption to do. But generated PDFs were not as those have to be, I mean special formatting instructions were completely ignored by the groff, resulting those to appear in PDF. Moreover, I used grog to guess, but with no success.

I guess using cygwin build perl would be the solution to run perl scripts from cygwin!

Thank you very much, for your prompt reply. The issue is solved now. The command works like charm. But, as you refers to grog, I just unable to run that. I could see the file to be present at /usr/bin/grog and I also have strawberry perl installed in my mc. But running command grog -Tdvi grnexmpl.me cygwin trows error «Can't open perl script "grog": No such file or directory». Could you please tell me, why?
