Read GNU/Linux manual pages from anywhere, anytime on your Android device!

Search through most of the manual pages about common GNU/Linux and Unix commands.

man is the GNU/Linux manual pager. Each "page" argument given to man is normally the name of a program, utility or function. The manual page associated with each of these arguments is then found and displayed. A section, if provided, will direct man to look only in that section of the manual. The default action is to search in all of the available sections, following a pre-defined order and to show only the first page found, even if page exists in several sections.

You can download manual pages locally on your SD card or internal storage to read it without internet connection.

    Finally, an app which provides the real man. I have tried other apps and this is the first one I have seems which allows for viewing the extra articles. One quip I have is that sometimes the text of the man page extends beyond the width of the screen, requiring horizontal scrolling.
