    Question Man page protocol.

    It would be nice to see a man page protocol. Something like:

    man://xterm

    And you get redirected to xterm in any online web. Or locally man page.

    I saw the apt protocol apt:debianpackage and I thought to do one for this.
    I did a "test" for this using google quick search (it is not finished yet, but it works).

    What do you think about this?

    Just thought I'd mention that Kubuntu already supports this. For example, you can view man pages within Konqueror by entering man:// into the location bar.

    I didn't know. Nautilus does not support this.

    Gnome also has a gui man page viewer through the help interface.
