Open a manpage in

/ Published in: Other
Save to your folder(s)

I did write this snippet, I found it somewhere on the internet (I think I found it in a .bash_profile file in [](

Paste this code at the end of your .bash_profile file and the use it instead of man if you want to read some manpages in (and eventually print the manpages or save them as a PDF file)

Copy this code and paste it in your HTML
  1. # Open a manpage in Preview, which can be saved to PDF
  2. pman()
  3. {
  4. man -t "${1}" | open -f -a /Applications/
  5. }
