dman - read man pages from manpages.debian.org
dman [ --release suite ] man-page
dman fetches a manpage from the online service manpages.debian.org using
and curl and displays it locally using man -l. If the --release
argument is provided, packages are fetched from that suite instead of the
default suite, found through /etc/lsb-release or
lsb_release -c -s.
dman will fetch translated pages first if the $LANG or
$LC_MESSAGES environment variables are set. It will fallback to the
default manpage if the translated version is not found.
dman was written by Dustin Kirkland <firstname.lastname@example.org>, based on
a framework by Kees Cook <email@example.com> and ported to the
debiman framework by Antoine Beaupré <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
