coolman(1)		    General Commands Manual		    coolman(1)

NAME
       coolman-3.17.20	- Man page reader for the X Window System based	on the
       Coolwidget library.

USAGE
       coolman [options] [-c <man-command>] [<man-page>]

DESCRIPTION
       This man	page reader just views the output of the man  system  command,
       with a nice point and click, drag and drop, GUI.

OPTIONS
       -d, -display _display_
	      The X server and display you would like to display to.

       -f, -fn,	-font _font-name_
	      The font you would like to use.

       -dnd-old
	      Use  dnd	version	0 instead of version 1.	Many apps that support
	      Dnd may only support the older version. Use this option to force
	      compatability.

       -c, -cmd, --command _man-command_
	      This  specifies  the  shell command to use to run	man. The %m is
	      replaced with the	name of	the man	page. The default  is  man  -a
	      %m,  where  -a specifies all man pages: the -a option may	not be
	      supported	on some	systems. Note that you can  use	 coolman  'cat
	      %m' <file-name> to use coolman to	just view a regular file.

       -h, -H, -?, --help
	      Print out	commandline options summary.

       -V, -v, --version
	      Print out	version	number.

USAGE
       If  Coolman  is	envoked	 without  arguments, it	requests a man page on
       startup.	Typical	usage of Coolman would be to open  one	man  page  and
       then double click on key	words or words in the SEE ALSO sections	of man
       pages. This will	cause Coolman to run man with the word that  was  dou-
       ble-clicked  on.	This will create a list	of opened man pages, which can
       be browsed with the Previous and	Next buttons. You can  search  through
       the text	by pressing F7 and entering your search	string - searching be-
       gins from the second line in the	window,	and is	transparent  to	 nroff
       formatting. To insert selected text from	other applications into	an in-
       put line, use Shift-Insert.  You	can also drag text from	the  man  page
       by  first  highlighting the text	with the mouse,	and then dragging from
       within the highlighted text.  Note that Drag and	drop may not  work  if
       your Dnd	version	is incompatible. Envoke	Coolman	with -dnd-old to force
       compatability.

       Finally,	function key usage is analogous	to Cooledit, eg	F10 exits.

COLORS
       You can change the colors  of  coolman  from  cooledit's	 configuration
       file:  ~/cedit/.cooledit.ini.   The  lines  of interest would look like
       this by default:

       [Options]
       option_text_fg_normal = 0
       option_text_fg_bold = 17
       option_text_fg_italic = 16
       option_text_bg_normal = 22
       option_text_bg_marked = 25
       option_text_bg_highlighted = 12

       Cooledit	creates	this file when it exits, but you  can  create  a  file
       that looks just like this if you	don't have cooledit.  The numbers rep-
       resent a	3x3x3 RGB matrix, eg. black is 0, white	is 26 and, say,	red is
       18.
