C++ manual page viewer / fetcher
cppman [ OPTIONS... ] PAGE...
cppman generates C++ manual pages from cplusplus.com and provide a man-like interface to view man pages.
By default, cppman fetches man pages on-the-fly, by running the command 'cppman -c', all available manpages are cached, making offline browsing possible. This is also required if you want to use the system 'man' command.
cppman uses Vi Improved as a pager.
Press 'q' to leave pager. Press 'K' on an entry like 'vector::insert(3)' links you to the manual page of vector::insert, like a hyperlink.
cppman automatically adds '~/.local/share/man' to '~/.manpath', so the cached man pages can also be viewed with 'man' command. Note that to view uncached man pages, you still need to run 'cppman'.
Select source, either 'cppreference.com' or 'cplusplus.com'. Default is 'cplusplus.com'.
