   grolj4 is a driver for  groff  that  produces  output  in  PCL5  format
   suitable for an HP Laserjet 4 printer.

   There is an additional drawing command available:

   \D'R dh dv'
          Draw  a  rule  (solid  black  rectangle), with one corner at the
          current position, and the  diagonally  opposite  corner  at  the
          current position +(dh,dv).  Afterwards the current position will
          be at the opposite corner.  This generates a PCL fill  rectangle
          command, and so will work on printers that do not support HPGL/2
          unlike the other \D commands.


   It is possible to have whitespace between a command line option and its

   -cn    Print n copies of each page.

          executive, a4, com10, monarch, c5, b5, dl.

   -v     Print the version number.

   -wn    Set  the  default  line thickness to n thousandths of an em.  If
          this option isn't specified,  the  line  thickness  defaults  to
          0.04 em.

   -Fdir  Prepend  directory  dir/devname  to the search path for font and
          device description files;  name  is  the  name  of  the  device,
          usually lj4.

   The  following  four  commands  are  available additionally in the font
