[Sorry 'bout all the crossposting, but there's no rec.nroff.abuse yet...]

The ;login: journal graciously printed my entry to the "Most Egregious
Misuse of Unix Utilities" contest.  Unfortunately, the program suffered
a certain amount of bitrot during the publishing process, and several folks
have asked for the correct version.  Here's the original (per)version,
for your viewing pleasure and/or nausea:

    Task: modulus operator program

    Implementation: use line wrapping and diversion in nroff

    #!/bin/sh
    nroff <
