Man Reader is an OS X app that will provide its users with quick and easy access to the UNIX man pages on a Mac's system.
Man Reader can prove to be highly useful for system administrators, programmers and users that want to tweak their system.
Man pages will provide you with the help needed to use and configure Unix commands and can be accessed through the Terminal, a clumsy and highly inconvenient way to view them.
NOTE: To buy Man Reader via the App Store an Apple account is required.
Here are some key features of "Man Reader":
· List of all available man pages on your system.
· Show only a section of the pages.
· Search for a man page by name.
· Display man page in text or HTML (different pages look best in different formats).
· Step back & forward through recently viewed man pages.
· Live links to ‘See Also’ entries.
· ‘Sticky notes’ at the side to jump to sub-sections in a page.
· Choose a font and size for the display.
