Man Reader allows quick, convenient and easy access to the man pages on your system, useful for programmers, system administrators and tweakers.

Man pages provide the help needed to configure and use Unix commands and are usually accessed through Terminal, but this is a clumsy and inconvenient way to view the pages.


• List the man pages on your system.
• Show only pages in a selected section.
• Search for a man page by name.
• Bookmark your favorite pages.
• Jump to sub-sections in a page.
• Live links to 'See Also' entries.
• Search for text within a page.
• Display man pages in text or HTML (different pages look best in different formats).
• See and use your History of recently viewed pages.
• Add your own custom notes to any man page.
• Choose a font and font sizes for the display.
• View the app's custom man page for help.
• Extensive support for keyboard operations.
• Open multiple tabs or windows.
• Add custom search locations.

Great app

I use this all the time worth every penny paid for it.

Very Useful

Not a necessity, but this makes reading the manual _so much_ easier. Worth its price.
