    The text displayed in the help window has a special internal
    format, so, simply displaying man or info texts there isn't
    possible.
    BTW, NEdit is a plain text editor (the help window is for on-
    line help about NEdit's features - there is reason to
    implement the help into the sources, so that it is always
    there). There are man or info readers like tkman around
    devoted to displaying and reading manpages.

    There is a macro solution now, see attached file and use
    this in the macro command dialog:

    if (-1 == $selection_start)
    {
    searchterm = string_dialog("Which Manpage?", "OK",
    "Dismiss")
    if (1 != $string_dialog_button)
    {
    return
    }
    } else
    {
    searchterm = get_selection("any")
    }
    nMan(searchterm)

    Note: The macro solution is for manpages only. Infopages are
    obsolete.
