Yet another way to read beautifully formatted man pages
Authored by: NovaScotian on May 14, '09 02:18:54PM

I use an AppleScript to accomplish this (using pstopdf -> Preview) but in addition to the lookup, for a quicker response next time, I store the results of each unique man page in a folder in ~/Documents. My script then checks that folder first for the term entered and does a man -t lookup of the term only if it's not already on file.
