JCATMAN(1)		  BSD General Commands Manual		    JCATMAN(1)

NAME
     jcatman --	preformat Japanese or original (English) man pages

SYNOPSIS
     jcatman [-f | -force] [-h | -help]	[-p | -print] [-r | -remove]
	     [-v | -verbose] [directories ...]

DESCRIPTION
     Jcatman format Japanese or	original (English) man pages to	ASCII/EUC.
     It's like typing `man program' for	all Japanese or	original man pages in
     directories.  Directories is a list of Japanese or	original man directo-
     ries or subdirectories separated by spaces	or colons.  You	have to	set
     the envionment variable LC_CTYPE (or LANG)	to ja_JP.EUC if	you include
     Japanese man directories in directories.  Use existing directories	of
     /usr/share/man/ja_JP.EUC, /usr/share/man/ja_JP, /usr/share/man/ja (if
     LC_CTYPE or LANG set to ja_JP.EUC)	or /usr/share/man (other) if no
     directories defined.

OPTIONS
     -f, -force
	     Force overwriting old cat pages.  Normally	only those pages will
	     be	formatted which	are not	up to date.  This option is a waste of
	     time, CPU and RAM.

     -h, -help
	     Print options and exit.

     -p, -print
	     Don't actually format man pages. Show what	would be done.

     -r, -remove
	     Remove garbage, e.	g. catpage without manpage, uncompressed cat-
	     page but a	compressed catpage exist, filenames with non-alphanu-
	     meric characters, uncompressed manpage but	a compressed manpage
	     exist.

     -v, -verbose
	     More warnings.

EXAMPLES
	   $ jcatman

     Format man	pages in existing directories of /usr/share/man/ja_JP.EUC,
     /usr/share/man/ja_JP, /usr/share/man/ja if	necessary.

	   $ jcatman $MANPATH

     Format all	your man pages if necessary.

	   $ jcatman -f	/usr/share/man/ja/man1 /usr/share/man/ja/manl

     Force reformatting	of all man pages in /usr/share/man/ja/man1 and
     /usr/share/man/ja/manl.

	   $ jcatman -p	/usr/X11R6/man/ja

     Show only.

FEATURES
     Very fast if all man Japanese pages already formatted.  Does not support
     the -w option as some other systems do.  Use jmakewhatis(1) to rebuild
     the `whatis' database.

BUGS
     jman(1) is	a setuid program.  Be careful that user	`man' has write	per-
     missions to the jcatman directories.  Jcatman does	not check for any
     `.so' in Japanese man page	sources.  Use hard or symlinks to avoid	redun-
     dant formatted Japanese man pages.

SEE ALSO
     jman(1), jmanpath(1), jmakewhatis(1).

HISTORY
     The original version of catman command appeared in	FreeBSD	2.1.
     Japanized jcatman command appeared	in ports/packages collection of	Free-
     BSD 2.2.
