I have a shell script using mksh that does part of the work. Currently, the useage would be like this: for m in *.html do lynx -dump $m | posix2nroff $m > `basename $m .html`.3posix done (I intend to change it to call lynx and add the extension, plus symlink where the HTML pages do so.) IF YOU CHANGE THE SHELL, YOU WILL NEED TO DEBUG IT! Quotes and escaping can vary subtly in ways that break the output (I know because I tested...); additionally, bash resulted in several places where the output of printf was something like "N^HNA^HAM^HME^HE" (not sure why).
