This isn't a direct answer to your question, but it's a solution to a
combination of things which probably bug you too:
1. I want to look at Erlang man pages as HTML, not 'man'
2. Usually, I already know which man page I want to read, so
choosing it from the (multi-page) modules index is a pain. I
want to type it in, either in the browser or (better) on the
The attached erlang program generates a pair of HTML pages which give
you a search box above the modules index. You type in, say, 'lis' and
it shows you the manpage for the lists module.
Works for me with Mozilla 1.1 and Netscape 4.7.
It also generates a shell script, so you can do this from the unix shell:
% eman gen_t
and mozilla will open the manpage for gen_tcp. The latter only works
with mozilla, but it's easy enough to make it work with netscape. No
idea about IE.
