manpages are your friend-but have you ever tired to print one ?
If you've been here at LQ for any length of time, and posted a question or two, then there's a strong possibility that someone will have suggested that you read the manpage for whatever.
For example, if you open a terminal window, as at the $ prompt, type man man you should see the man page for man - it tells you about man pages.
Now, if like me, you hate reading complex, unfamiliar, formatted documents from a screen, then once you know which man page you want/need to read,
in a terminal type
man <name> | col -b > ~/manpage.txt
Just remember to change the <name> part to the command or whatever you need to read. If you then look in your home directory, you should have a copy of that man page, called manpage.txt
You should then be able to print it out. Try it, with maybe man ls | col -b > ~/manpage.txt or maybe man dmesg | col -b > ~/manpage.txt
If you need more than one, you can change the command a little so the output txt message has a different name, in a moment of childishness I tried man dmesg | col -b > ~/dogshit.txt and of course, that produced the output of man dmesg as a text file called dogshit.txt
Ah, it's so much nicer to be able to read these bloody things on a piece of paper.
Maybe this might help you a little ?
