Use the clipboard in the terminal
Authored by: vramin on Apr 06, '04 03:18:28AM

man pages are contain a lot of information for formatting so the command

man man | pbcopy

will result in a lot of garbage on the clipboard. Commands that have plain text results work fine.

Yo get man mages to the clipboard you could use something like:

man TheManpageYouWant | groff -t -e -mandoc -Tascii | col -bx | pbcopy
