Retawq is nice and small. It gives good results when browsing linux.die.net man pages:
The only problem for me: how to exit it?? :-D
In other hand, retawq not supported UTF-8. Really? Yes.
We can use
man to read local documentation in HTML format:
Here, as I found from
/usr/share/man sources, HTML is dumped using retawq. The only problem here is: lines of text is half-filled because text is in UTF-8 and each Cyrillic symbol here takes two bytes.
Let's direct open that HTML page in retawq:
To summarize. The using of retawq is limited. You can use it to display English man pages from linux.die.net (but how to exit it?:)
But it is better not to use it everywhere in /usr/share/man.
Also, please take a look at my (weird) script in which I convert local HTML page to display it in the terminal:
tazpkg -h gi
Regular expression is a "heart" of this script: http://hg.slitaz.org/tazpkg/file/879df9728956/modules/help#l140
