Remove footers from 'man' pages
Authored by: boredzo on Aug 12, '05 02:15:18AM

regarding robg's addition: as of Panther (and possibly earlier versions), you can use man -t tcsh > tcsh.1.ps to get the output in PostScript format. you can then use Preview to convert it to PDF and print it, or use lpr on it directly (lpr tcsh.1.ps).

pstopdf is esier to use to convert from postscript to pdf. Example:

man -t bash | pstopdf -i -o bash.pdf

will create file bash.pdf
