2.3 Macro Directories
All macro file names must be named `NAME.tmac' or `tmac.NAME' to make
the `-mNAME' command line option work. The `mso' request doesn't have
this restriction; any file name can be used, and `gtroff' won't try to
append or prepend the `tmac' string.
Macro files are kept in the "tmac directories", all of which
constitute the "tmac path". The elements of the search path for macro
files are (in that order):
* The directories specified with `gtroff''s or `groff''s `-M'
command line option.
* The directories given in the `GROFF_TMAC_PATH' environment
* The current directory (only if in unsafe mode using the `-U'
command line switch).
* The home directory.
* A platform-dependent directory, a site-specific
(platform-independent) directory, and the main tmac directory; the
default locations are
assuming that the version of `groff' is 1.20.1, and the
installation prefix was `/usr/local'. It is possible to fine-tune
those directories during the installation process.
