What is man.cx?

Have you ever wanted to check a manual page for a tool you hadn't installed on the current machine? Well, it happend to me various times. There are some manpage interfaces available on the net, but they all just provide access to the GNU tools or maybe to the tools installed on the host, but they are always missing some pages. So I thought, why isn't there a page with all manpages? So I just built one.

All Manpages?

Well okay not all, but a lot. In fact, I extracted all the manpages from all available packages in the Debian testing distribution, plus some pages from other sources. This makes a total of 119686 available manpages (including translations).

Cool! How do I use it?

Just enter the name of the page you want in the inputbox at the top of the page. You can add a section number (in parentheses) if you want. But you can simply use the fast to type URL man.cx/pagename in your browser's addressbar.

It sucks!

Try your luck at any of these alternative pages:
