sgml2txt [generic-option...] [--manpage] [--filter] [--blanks=n]
sgml2txt is an old and obsoleted form of the text converter command of
LinuxDoc-Tools. It is recommended to switch the new form linuxdoc -B
text now. It converts a LinuxDoc DTD SGML source file to ASCII,
ISO-8859-1, or EUC-JP output. Output will appear in file.txt where file
is the name of the SGML source file.
The attribute/value pair "output=txt" is set for conditionals.
sgml2txt accepts all the generic options described in linuxdoc(1), and
the following specific options:

put document. The default limit is 3. if 0 (zero) is specified,
