Suppose I had a list of pathnames to a system's man

good cross *nix way to convert them to ascii?

Assuming you use groff 1.18.x, does

$ export GROFF_NO_SGR=1
$ man -c 3 mitem_visible | col -b > mitem_visible_3.txt

work for you?

Any tips on how to approach this in a *nix-independent
manner (while still retaining man page formatting) are
most welcome.

Huh!? You lost me there.
