Homebrew formulae for
Whether you love man pages or the Troff typesetting system itself, you've come to the right place.
This is a “tap” for Homebrew, the unofficial package manager for macOS.
We'll gauchely assume you know what we're talking about.
If not, see
brew(1) or their online documentation for more info on getting started.
To grab hold of these formulae, run:
brew tap alhadis/troff
Then install any of them at your leisure:
brew install alhadis/troff/man-db brew install heirloom-doctools
Note: Some of these formulae are already available from Homebrew's core, but require configuration before use.
This tap replaces them with DWIM equivalents, ones which require no
PATH-fiddling after installation.
A complication of this is that
alhadis/troff/ must prefix the formula's name when installed.
Others can be installed normally (e.g.,
heirloom-doctools as illustrated above).
