displays the input one page at a time. The input is the concatenation of the
input files, or the standard input if no files were specified and the
standard input is not a terminal.
The options are as follows:
.Bl -tag -width "12345678"
.It Fl R
Output only escape sequences that change font properties such as color and
.It Fl r
Causes raw control characters to be dumped directly onto the terminal. Usage
of this option may cause output to be misleading for suspicious files, as the
escape codes in the file are rendered and can be used to hide parts of the
input. Avoid the -r option if you want to see the actual bytes in the file,
or use -R to show only selected escape codes.
