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.
