I'm currently writing one in perl. It almost does the hypertext links
to the "See Also" manual pages, and anything else that looks like
another man page. Unfortunately, it will probably have to be
customised to the -man macros that are in use on each system. Mine is
currently customised for SunOS man pages, but I'm trying to make it
more general. Sorry I won't give out code at the moment, not until it
works :-)

If anyone's got any great ideas, or suggestions for this, let me
