Description Tim Chase 2020-02-14 16:06:15 UTC
Reading the man-page for ul(1) noticed reference to colcrt and went to learn more but found it didn't exist. Noticed that there was no man-page for nroff either when I checked.

    $ man ul | grep -B1 colcrt
         colcrt(1), man(1), nroff(1)
    $ man colcrt nroff
    No manual entry for colcrt
    No manual entry for nroff
