I can't find useful info how to easily delete all groff (nroff) related formatting markers. unroff doesn't seem to do the job. On Mac OS I can't see it anyway.

    Could you share an example that unroff can't handle? Also, what is unroff (it's not in the macOS base system, nor in Homebrew)? Running it through nroff would technically delete the actual markup.

  • If you want normal text output for a manual page, you could do something like man foo | col -b.
