Manpower is a man page GUI for Mac OS X. Man pages are the main system of Unix software documentation, offering descriptions of the functionality and methods of the various Unix command-line programs. Man pages are typically accessed in the Unix terminal--but this is cumbersome. It takes a lot of typing to search and read man pages in the Unix console. Manpower provides a simple, elegant three-pane interface that makes reading man pages as easy as reading e-mail.


Release Notes:

* Minor bug fixes.

Useful - This app is quite useful, but I have some questions. First, it diuplicates many of the commands in the user command list. Second it doesn't list any system commands. After the search it returns the user to the top of the list instead of where they last were in the list. A small thing but handy if it remembered. And last, it's not cheap, and albeit very useful for someone who works in terminal mode, it's a little overpriced.
