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.

environment variable. The default is localhost.
