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.
