A Vim filetype plugin for displaying Groff files in a document viewer as determined by the system default or chosen by the user. The document viewer used should auto-reload and preferably support the postscript file format - examples are Zathura, Evince, Okular or Xreader.

Usage, configuration, etc: https://github.com/PreciousChicken/vim-groff-viewer

At a Linux terminal:

  mkdir -p ~/.vim/pack/preciouschicken/start/groff-viewer

Additionally ensure that you have the line 'filetype plugin on' added to your .vimrc if not already.

Helptags for the plugin can be loaded by using the command ':helptags ALL' when a groff file is open. Help will then be accessible within Vim via ':help groff-viewer'.
