/* To add a new output format:
 * 1. Add the new -Tx suboption to the manual page.
 * 2. Add handling for the new suboption to c2man.c, including the default
 *    output file extension.
 * 3. Copy nroff.c to xxx.c and change the xxx_... output functions and the
 *    pointers in the xxx_output structure so the new xxx_output object
 *    generates the correct output constructs. Try to do this without modifying
 *    manpage.c if possible; add new output functions only if necessary.
 * 4. Add the new xxx_output structure to the declaration of output structures
 *    at the end of this file.
