 NAME
      UnRTF - converts document in RTF format to other formats

 SYNOPSIS
      unrtf [options] [file...]

      Options: [--nopict] [--noremap] [--html] [--text] [--vt] [--rtf]
      [--latex] [--help] [--verbose] [--quiet] [--version]
      [-P config_search_path] [-t tags_file]

 DESCRIPTION
      The program unrtf is a converter from Rich Text Format (RTF) to a
      growing number of document formats. At present it supports Hypertext
      Markup Language (HTML), plain text, text with VT100 codes, LaTeX, and
      RTF itself.  It is possible to produce troff files with macro calls;
      an example configuration for troff and the mm macro package is
      provided.  All output formats except HTML are "alpha" i.e. limited and
      development has just begun.  However with HTML, the program supports
      tables, fonts, hyperlinks, and paragraph alignment. Font support
      includes face and size changes, as well as typical attributes such as
      italic, bold, underlining, strikethrough, smallcaps, allcaps, expand,
      compress and both foreground and background colors.  Images are always
      stored to separate files in the current directory, or they can be
      ignored.

      Starting with version 0.21.0, all control of unrtf output is through
      runtime configuration files.  This makes it easy for users to fine-
      tune the output, and/or define new output formats.  The configuration
      files can be read from the distributed ones, or from user files,
      searched for in the config_search_path .

      Code page conversion is performed with the iconv(3) package.

 OPTIONS
      --nopict
           disables the automatic storing of embedded pictures to the
           current directory.

      --noremap
           disables charset conversion (currently only works for 8-bit
           charsets).

      --html
           selects HTML output (default).

      --rtf
           selects RTF output.  The resulting output will often be much
           smaller than the input.

      --text
           selects plain ASCII text output.

                              GNU UnRTF 0.21.3



      --vt selects text output with VT100 escape codes.

      --latex
           selects output of a LaTeX document.

      --verbose
           prints additional information.

      --quiet
           suppress output of leading comments

      --version
           prints the program version.

      -t tags_file
           specifies the tags output configuration file to be used. The
           command "unrtf -t html" is functionally identical to "unrtf --
           html".  The configuration files are a simple format.  To change
           the behaviour of unrtf, a local copy of a system configuration
           file can be be made and edited.  The most complete configuration
           file and hence the best starting point is
           /usr/local/share/unrtf/html.conf.

      -P config_search_path
           specifies the directories in which the configuration file for the
           specified format will be sought.  The path can be provided as a
           single directory or a list of colon separated directories. The
           default is /usr/local/share/unrtf/ where distributed output
           configuration files are installed.

 FILES
      /usr/local/share/unrtf/*.conf
           - run time output configuration files.

      /usr/local/share/unrtf/SYMBOL.charmap
           - UTF encoding of the SYMBOL font used in many RTF files.
           Unfortunately the iconv package does not include font encodings.
           The format is identical to iconv code page files.
