Package Space Applications – help2man


help2man is a tool for automatically generating simple manual pages from program output. Given a program which produces resonably standard –help and –version outputs, help2man will re-arrange that output into something which resembles a manual page.


If you have not already done so, install the its-release package that grants access to ITS’s yum repository.

Then install as follows:

        % sudo yum install help2man-unc

Files are installed in /opt/unc.


1. The latest version available is help2man 1.47.4. Vendor release date:  May 8, 2016.
