doccentral(1) [debian man page]

doccentral - web-based documentation browser SYNOPSIS
doccentral [document-name] OPTIONS
The only option that can be passed to the doccentral wrapper is a document name (often the same as the name of the package which provides it) for direct access (automatic search for the given parameter). DESCRIPTION
Doc-Central is a simple tool to help you browse the documentation installed on your Debian system. It uses the doc-base registration entries for documentation to build a list of available documentation. You can view this list via any web browser. The easiest way to view the doc-central index is to use the doccentral tool, which will look for a webbrowser on your system and start that with the correct page. If for any reason doccentral cannot find a suitable browser or you want to use another one, you can also use the following URL: http://localhost/dc/ <http://localhost/dc/> ENVIRONMENT
BROWSER Override the normal browser selection from doccentral by specifying a specific browser. DC_HOST Override the location of Doc-Central (usually localhost) AUTHOR

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. SEE ALSO
man(1), man2html(1), arena(1), lynx(1), sensible-browser(1), netscape(1), xmosaic(1), glimpse(1) 19 January 1998 hman(1)
