;;; Commentary:
;; This code provides a function, `man', with which you can browse
;; UNIX manual pages. Formatting is done in background so that you
;; can continue to use your Emacs while processing is going on.
;;
;; The mode also supports hypertext-like following of manual page SEE
;; ALSO references, and other features. See below or do `?' in a
;; manual page buffer for details.
;; ========== Credits and History ==========
;; In mid 1991, several people posted some interesting improvements to
;; man.el from the standard Emacs 18.57 distribution. I liked many of
;; these, but wanted everything in one single package, so I decided
;; to incorporate them into a single manual browsing mode. While
;; much of the code here has been rewritten, and some features added,
;; these folks deserve lots of credit for providing the initial
;; excellent packages on which this one is based.
;; Nick Duffek <duffek@chaos.cs.brandeis.edu>, posted a very nice
;; improvement which retrieved and cleaned the manpages in a
;; background process, and which correctly deciphered such options as
;; man -k.
;; Eric Rose <erose@jessica.stanford.edu>, submitted manual.el which
;; provided a very nice manual browsing mode.
;; This package was available as `superman.el' from the LCD package
;; for some time before it was accepted into Emacs 19. The entry
;; point and some other names have been changed to make it a drop-in
;; replacement for the old man.el package.
;; Francesco Potortì <pot@cnuce.cnr.it> cleaned it up thoroughly,
;; making it faster, more robust and more tolerant of different
;; systems' man idiosyncrasies.
;; ========== Features ==========
;; + Runs "man" in the background and pipes the results through a
;; series of sed and awk scripts so that all retrieving and cleaning
;; is done in the background. The cleaning commands are configurable.
;; + Syntax is the same as Un*x man
;; + Functionality is the same as Un*x man, including "man -k" and
;; "man <section>", etc.
;; + Provides a manual browsing mode with keybindings for traversing
;; the sections of a manpage, following references in the SEE ALSO
;; section, and more.
;; + Multiple manpages created with the same man command are put into
;; a narrowed buffer circular list.
;; ============= TODO ===========
;; - Add a command for printing.
;; - The awk script deletes multiple blank lines. This behavior does
;; not allow to understand if there was indeed a blank line at the
;; end or beginning of a page (after the header, or before the
;; footer). A different algorithm should be used. It is easy to
;; compute how many blank lines there are before and after the page
;; headers, and after the page footer. But it is possible to compute
;; the number of blank lines before the page footer by heuristics
;; only. Is it worth doing?
;; - Allow a user option to mean that all the manpages should go in
;; the same buffer, where they can be browsed with M-n and M-p.
