Sucking up to the boss, are we!?  :-)

Seriously, I also liked it a lot - very useful! Thanks Sean! An improvement
would perhaps be the possibility to save the retrieved data (from an update) to
file so that you don't have to collect the info from scratch every time you
start the program. I suppose using e.g. dets, it would be quite a quick thing to
implement?

While we're on the subject of easy access to documentation... I've sometimes
found it useful to be able to view Erlang man pages from the Erlang shell. I
wrote a very simple program the other day that either prints a page to stdout or
lets you perform some string searching within a page. If anyone's interested
I'll post it.

Regards
