.TH hman 1 "19 January 1998"
.LO 1
.SH NAME
hman \- browse the on-line manual pages
.SH SYNOPSIS
.B hman
[ -P \fIbrowser\fP ] [ -H \fIhost\fP ] [ \fIsection\fP ] \fIname\fP
.br
.B hman
[ -P \fIbrowser\fP ] [ -H \fIhost\fP ] [ \fIsection\fP ] [ index ]
.SH DESCRIPTION
The
.B 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
.BR man (1)
so that many people will be able to alias
.B hman
to
.BR man .
If the browser used is netscape, and an incarnation of netscape
is running already,
.B hman
will pass the request to the existing browser.
.SH OPTIONS

.BR lynx .
.TP
.B \-\^H " host"
Specify from what host to get the man pages.
This option overrides the
