Thanks. The .cp request has been removed from my own file. I put it there,
bacause I wanted to be sure that I wouldn't use any no-nompatible ability.
I didn't think that it could change the way my macros work.
Since it seems that without the .cp request, the output is the same for
everybody, I think there are two thnigs to do:
- try to understand why it works in .cp mode on two different computers
and not in some others. Are you sure that your own .troffrc couldn't
have effects on the behaviour of my macros ?
- finish the low level code:
- an interruption will increase the speed
- a draft mode will still increase the speed when the formatting is not
your present care;
- clean the stderr messages, which aren't always coherent;
- finish the man page (almost done);
Then I will either see if it is worth it writing some high level macros, or
if the best wouldn't be to see how my macros could be encapsulated in
the -ms or -mm ones.
