Taper Man page

Taper Man page

Post by Ted Troccol » Sun, 01 Dec 1996 04:00:00

I use RedHat 4.0 kernel 2.0.24  (Of course without the support
I paid for)

I have taper version taper-6.7.4

It is there, but the man page isn't

I have the   /usr/doc/taper-6.7.4-1/taper.txt file and the INSTALL
file which say that there is a man page.  

Why is that page not installed?  And, where can I get it?


p.s.  The taper.txt file looks like a troff format... how
do you view that from command line getting those control
characters to do what they are supposed to?


1. Standard man pages to "Catted" man pages!

To Anyone Interested:

        How does one take a standard "troff"ed (?) man page that comes
with a package off the net (ending in .1, .2, etc) and turn in into a
compressed, "cat"ted man page (ending in .1.Z, .2.Z, etc) that are
stored in the directory /usr/man/catN (N = 1,2,3,...) that can be read
by the standard man utility that comes with the SLS distribution?  I'm
sure that this is trivial to do, and is probably written down
SOMEWHERE, but I've got only so many hours a day I can spend reading
FAQs and HOWTOs.  Thanx in advance...
