Yes. In the request index there are names and page numbers, e.g. `pnr ............... 168' If one is looking for a function but does not know the request's name, it takes a long time to find what one wants.
Try this, no, try that, no, try this, yeah.

However, if there was some text between request names and page numbers, e.g. `pnr ... print num regs ... 168'
then one's search would be a few secs.
Especially if this text would start with a prefix, e.g. `pnr ... deb: print num regs ... 168' with `deb' for debugging.

Just out of interest. As someone who hates typing a lot and loves
silly 2 character names, I would write a Perl script to list and
sort number registers in source files.  Is there a utility that does
that regarding groff and other compiled companions?  Perhaps done
using the source just before compilation?

.pnr, .pm, .pev, .ptr
