Was wondering how to get "man" to output pages in plain text? I
want the basic formating (indentation & whatnot) but NOT the bold

tried setting the terminal type to "dumb" and the stupid thing
still tries to do back-space overstrike bolding (jeesh - even
LA-120s had fancier print capabilities than that, IIRC.)
env TERM=dumb PAGER=ul man man
...seemed to work OK for me, compare this to not specifying a pager
when you redirect the output to a file. Reading "man grotty" might
give you additional things to tweak...
