man pp -> info

man pp -> info

Post by prichard devo » Sun, 14 Apr 1991 22:00:30



let me turn around the current thread on info->man by asking,

"Gee, Wally, how do I take some man pages in nroff format and put them
safely into the info reader system??"

considering how nice the info reader is, and the fact that I don't yet have
any backup device (and no system backups), I'd just as soon not do anything
to nuke the system...

TIA

Seriously, this has been asked and answered many times (and should
definitely be in the FAQ), and the answer is:

        This is not currently available.
