Description:

manview is a simple (originally consisted of 2 lines!) wrapper using zenity for viewing man pages.
Naturally this requires zenity and man. Either specify the page you wish to view (e.g. manview man) or simply run manview and an entry dialog will appear for you to enter the page you wish to view.

It is very simple and there are far better man viewers for X (function-wise xman is still superior) but it's light, small and may be easier to read an navigate than in a terminal, especially for those who aren't so fond of the command line.
Last changelog:

10 years ago

v0.2 Initial release on GTK-Apps. Now accepts queries from the command line and checks if any were made. Also checks if the page actually exists (rather than displaying a blank zenity dialog if it can\'t find the page) and gives an appropriate error.
