more about manpages


Further to this thread that I posted about printing manpages, I've since found this link about "reading" them, as well.

I doesn't make decyphering man pages second nature, but I've found it makes understanding then considerably easier.

Hope it helps someone.

regards

John

Another thing worth knowing is that you can use the -t switch with man to produce postscript output, which can then be converted to a PDF or printed directly.
