gv as an alternate
Authored by: gshenaut on Dec 30, '05 11:01:50AM
If you run X windows, here is a script (pipegv) I've used for a long time, based on the standard "gv" X11 postscript viewer:

#!/bin/sh

if [ "$1" = "" ] ; then
        T=/tmp/pipgv.$$
        trap "rm -f $T" EXIT INT
        cat > $T
        gv $T
else
        gv $*
fi
You can use "man -t whatever | pipegv" to look at neatly formated man pages.
