It seems that Dennis Ritchie wrote a paper 'A Tour through the Unix C
Compiler' which is quite useful in understanding the compiler. I have
converted the doc to Markdown format as well which makes it easier to
???You might try downloading the PDF or PS versions of the V7 documents from
amazon. It seems like a lot less work work and will be a lot easier to
read. Also Gnu groff runs on pretty much everything these days, so going
from the V7 troff sources yourself is not difficult; in fact its pretty
smart. Its still the best 'pure document compiler' out there. And it
means you can add your additions/ corrections / notes to what Dennis did
I actually wacked a bunch of the Unix docs to make them look a little
better, I should see if I can find that.
I agree that roff is awesome, it's a bummer that Latex seems to be
the winner (which I think is purely because the roff/eqn/pic/etc
docs weren't widely available back in the day).
