Sorry if this is off-topic.

After years of escaping this, it's finally come up. I'm going to have to
write man pages. I've scoured amazon.com for a book on this, but the
only books I can find are from 1986 and out of print. Can anyone
recommend a good primer on writing these beasts? I'm not even sure what
to write them *in*. TROFF?

Thanks in advance, please reply offline and I'll post a summary to the
list if there's any interest.
