Subject: Re: [GNU Ports] man and man pages?

I'll check these out, including  I search for man pages online all the time also, but it is usually for something I don't have installed yet (or if I work someplace that sees man pages as a security threat).  However, I do prefer the immediate satisfaction of  typing man <command> in the same window my fingers are already in :-)

Hi guys,

don't think there is a current man reader install-able with RPM/YUM.
There's the old EMX man reader and a few others on hobbes
FWIW, I current use the EMX build of:

   man.exe, version 1.5g

which works well with our less port.

There's also Alex's

and most man
pages are available on the web.
Another FWIW, my typical online man page search is

   man man page

because I prefer the formatting.
