This is the second distribution of cawf, an nroff-like text formatter. It
is a C version of awf, Henry Spencer's Amazingly Workable (text) Formatter.
(Awf is written in awk and appears in comp.sources.unix, Volume 23, Issue 27.)
Changes to this distribution include added nroff support, bug fixes and some
limited printer support.

Cawf and awf provide a usable subset of raw nroff capabilities and the styles
of the man(7) and ms(7) macro sets. One of cawf's virtues is that it will
run on PC clones under MS-DOS. It is also, like awf, totally independent of
any licensed Unix source code.

The distribution contains complete source, make files for Unix and MS-DOS,
documentation (raw and formatted) and MS-DOS executables for cawf and its
companion output filters, bsfilt and fontfilt.

The distribution file is a UUENCODED, ZIP archive.

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
