NAME

dwww - access documentation via WWW  

SYNOPSIS

http://localhost/dwww/index.html
dwww
dwww program-name | package-name  

DESCRIPTION

A typical Linux system has documentation in many formats (manual pages, info files, READMEs, and so on). dwww makes it possible to access all of these via the same interface, a WWW browser. This makes it easier to use the documentation.

To use dwww, load the URL given in the SYNOPSIS. If you have a web browser installed, you can also just run the dwww command which loads the URL. If BROWSER environment variable is set, dwww uses sensible-browser(1) to load the URL. Otherwise, dwww first tries to use browser specified by DWWW_BROWSER or DWWW_X11_BROWSER configuration variable (cf. dwww(7)), than will use sensible-browser(1) command.

If optional argument program-name or package-name is specified, dwww will search all documentation related to given program or package.  

ENVIRONMENT

BROWSER
Program used to load the above mentioned URL.
 

FILES

/etc/dwww/dwww.conf
