10.4: Use Preview to view formatted man pages
Authored by: klktrk on Dec 30, '05 08:50:41AM

I don't know what kind of machines you are using, but converting the man page for 'man' took about 50 seconds (and also generated the below entries in the console). The formatted pages look gorgeous, so this seems more like a good hint for how to print out a man page rather than using for ad hoc reference.

For quick references to man pages, I recommend a nice Cocoa util called ManOpen (you can find it on macupdate.com).

In the terminal I just defined the following alias:
alias man='/usr/local/bin/openman'

Now, whenever I type 'man foo', I get a window in ManOpen with the contents of the command's man page beautifully laid out, while I'm still able to work in the Terminal window. And it takes all of four seconds. Much better.

Oh, the log entries from the hint command. Have fun scrolling!

10.4: Use Preview to view formatted man pages
Authored by: dierauer on Dec 30, '05 09:08:07AM

I also observed this behavior on my first test, but my second test (converting the man page for bash - 60 pages in Preview) was quicker (~25 sec.), and didn't print anything to the Console log.

This was on a PowerMac G4/400 (Gigabit Ethernet) with 896 MB of RAM.

So still pretty slow; I doubt I'll switch to this method from the excellent Manopen.

10.4: Use Preview to view formatted man pages
Authored by: rusto on Dec 30, '05 09:09:22AM
I also experienced a long "Converting Postscript file to PDF" wait, but only for the first time I tried the hint. Subsequent man pages opened in a couple of seconds.

You must have some front problems or...

...something like this... It took 5-6sec to open a man page with the Preview method on my *400MHz G3* PowerBook...
