    Source code for the man pages

    Hello, everyone. I apologize, since what I'm asking for is hard to explain. I was wondering where I could find the source code for man, the program that prints manual pages for various commands and functions. I've tried googling this, but I can't seem to find anything. I don't think I'm being clear enough, I can't have my query be too specific.

    Does anyone know where I can find this? I'm on OS X now, so I don't have the convenience of apt-get.

    A few non apt-get source ways to get it on osx,
    Upstream Version: http://nongnu.uib.no/man-db/
    Ubuntu Versions (orig.tar.gz + packaging): https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/man-db
    Bzr Branches: https://code.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/man-db
