hman - browse the on-line manual pages


hman [ -P browser ] [ -H host ] [ section ] name
hman [ -P browser ] [ -H host ] [ section ] [ index ]


The hman script is an interface to man2html(1) that allows you to enter man page requests
at the command line and view the output in your favourite browser. The behaviour reminds
of that of man(1) so that many people will be able to alias hman to man. If the browser
used is netscape, and an incarnation of netscape is running already, hman will pass the
request to the existing browser.


-P browser
Specify which browser (like lynx, xmosaic, arena, chimera, netscape, amaya, ...) to
use. This option overrides the MANHTMLPAGER environment variable. The default is
the non-httpd version of lynx, or sensible-browser if lynx cannot be found.

-H host
Specify from what host to get the man pages. This option overrides the MANHTMLHOST
environment variable. The default is localhost.


The default browser to use is selected using this environment variable.

The default host to use is selected using this environment variable.

Use hman online using onworks.net services
