Open manpages in your browser!


Access all your manpages directly from your browser!

Man::script is an awesome tool for those that make use of terminal commands and the manpages that comes with these programs. It allows you to open any manpage installed on your system right from the browser where you can read more comfortably these help pages, and even navigate to other manpages referenced in the one you are reading.

Man::script also can create a manpage index, with links to all the system's manpages, making it very easy to access them. Just open the index and start browsing your manpages like if they were web pages, in fact, Man::script converts them into web pages!


  • Easy access of manpages from a browser
  • Create an index with all the system's manpages in alphabetical order with links you can click.
