10.4: Use Preview to view formatted man pages
Authored by: megabulk on Dec 30, '05 09:50:44AM
You left out a quote on your example alias. Should be
alias pman "man -t !:* | open -f -a /Applications/Preview.app"

Or just

alias pman='man -t "*" | open -f -a Preview'

in the bashrc file

10.4: Use Preview to view formatted man pages
Authored by: magnamous on Dec 31, '05 10:19:34PM
This version in my .bash_profile file brings up the man page for ZSHZLE(1) no matter what I type. I've tried using pman bash, pman mkdir, pman ls, pman man, etc. Everything comes up as a 21-page ZSHZLE(1) document in Preview.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be wrong? Thanks.
