dwww-format-man - batch format manual pages for dwww


dwww-format-man directory ...


dwww-format-man looks for manual pages in the directories named on the command line. It formats each manual page, and puts the formatted version into the dwww document cache. System administrator's can run dwww-format-man if they want to make it faster to retrieve manual pages via dwww. If dwww-format-man is not run, dwww will automatically format manual pages not in its cache. Long pages take a few moments to format, but rarely so slow that it is worth running

dwww-format-man uses su(1) command to run dwww-convert(8) with privileges of DWWW_CGIUSER .
