1. Browse Unix Man Pages W.O. (without) Man

WoMan is a program that is an alternative to Man package that is typically installed on UNIX systems for reading manual pages on GNU/Emacs. It certain situations, the package might not be present and WoMan is another similar interface for reading the manual pages.

2. Configuration

Depending on the system, you may want to change the values of woman-manpath and woman-path, but luckily for me, I don't have to do that.

I do wish to use the full frame's width instead of fixed width, so let's configure that (we can use woman-fill-column to specify a specific width if we wish).

(setq woman-fill-frame t)

Provide the feature

(provide 'init-woman)
