For about one-tenth the effort, you can install and use Bwana:

I've used Sogudi for quite some time and never knew about this. So for the rest of the uniformed Sogudi users:
SogudiPowerCustomize
It's on by default. So for instance to see the launchd man page type man:launchd in the address bar

Or use manServer. I've been using this for a few years and it works wonderfully! No need for anything other than the provided PERL script.

Bwana is the one for me also. Nicely formatted with colour coding in Safari.

Agreed, been using Bwana since it was first mentioned on this site in combination with a small bash script which was also submitted to this site - which means you can use it directly from the terminal or from Safari.
Too easy
