NAME

       hman - browse the on-line manual pages

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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.

ENVIRONMENT

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

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