man gui, updated

a. yelp

yelp man:vim &

https://askubuntu.com/questions/253705/graphical-user-interface-to-view-man-page

b. bman alias

apt install groff
BROWSER=firefox-esr man --html vim

^ better, since it has tabs

Alias could be

alias bman='BROWSER=firefox-esr man --html'

so one would do

bman vim

in the future.

c. bman script (winner)

This works great with chrome, but less great with other browsers

xdg-settings set default-web-browser google-chrome.desktop

Example output of command

bman urxvt

Getting path to some man file

man -w vim                                
/usr/share/man/man1/vim.1.gz
