Navigating in a man page (accessed through the man command) can be annoying particularly if you’re going through 5 pages of text or else. man2html is a small but useful tool that makes the unix man pages available in your web browser with a simple and clean interface.

  1. First install man2html from the shell by executing:
    sudo apt-get install man2html
  2. Then to view your man pages, just point your browser to:
    http://localhost/cgi-bin/man/man2html
