4.6 ms

The ms (“manuscript”) package is suitable for the preparation of letters, memoranda, reports, and books. These groff macros feature cover page and table of contents generation, automatically numbered headings, several paragraph styles, a variety of text styling options, footnotes, and multi-column page layouts. ms supports the tbl, eqn, pic, and refer preprocessors for inclusion of tables, mathematical equations, diagrams, and standardized bibliographic citations. This implementation is mostly compatible with the documented interface and behavior of AT&T Unix Version 7 ms. Many extensions from 4.2BSD (Berkeley) and Tenth Edition Research Unix have been recreated.
