I would assume so.  But probably not just a plain text file, because
the resulting VARM contains right-justified text.  I've always assumed
it was done with RUNOFF.  I thought it contained a statement to that
effect, but I can't find it in my dead-tree VARM.  Perhaps I'm thinking
of some other VMS manuals from back when I used VMS.

I'm honestly a little surprised we've got even that PDF.
