hman [ -P browser ] [ -H host ] [ section ] [ index ]
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.
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.
Specify from what host to get the man pages. This option overrides the MANHTMLHOST environment variable. The default is localhost.
The default browser to use is selected using this environment variable.
The default host to use is selected using this environment variable.
