5.28.3 Blank Line Traps

Request: .blm [name]

Set a blank line trap, calling the macro name when GNU troff encounters a blank line in an input file, instead of the usual behavior (see Breaking). A line consisting only of spaces is also treated as blank and subject to this trap. If no argument is supplied, the default blank line behavior is (re-)established.
