As far as I know, info doesn't let you search document-wide (including all subsections, branches and crossreferences) while man documents - being ONE document - let's you do this. Furthermore, it's quite easy to turn a a manpage into a nice looking PS / PDF file for printing and archiving. zcat `man -w <COMMAND>` | groff -Tps -dpaper=a4 -P-pa4 -mandoc | ps2pdf - man.pdf I'm not sure you can do this with info based manuals... -- Polytropon >From Magdeburg, Germany Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0 Andra moi ennepe, Mousa, ... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
