I believe that man search path for man files, can be altered via env variable. recompling is not necessary.

Use elinks and shell script for retrieving man html from a webserver:

elinks is a scriptable browser. If that was installed along with a simple man.sh script it could be made to look up html man pages installed on a school server or one of the standard html man web sites. An example of such a script is at [1]. Note the author of this script (man) is still working on it and the script will change Tinker 20:47, 21 June 2008 (EDT)


An updated version of the script (woman) is now at [2] . (The author of the script is a woman hence she named the updated version woman)! Tinker 23:26, 4 July 2008 (UTC)
