Sublime Manpage

Sublime Manpage

Postby apophys on Thu Jun 07, 2012 8:43 pm


I'd like to present my first Sublime Text 2 plugin - Manpage :). As I do use ST to write my C or C++ code, I somehow found annoying to switch to terminal window to view manual pages.

This plugin is my solution (at least first version of it :) ) to this annoyance. Plugin works on Mac OS X and Linux systems. Windows is not supported, for obvious reasons.

Plugin is hosted on github: https://github.com/apophys/SublimeManpage
For more info check readme in repository.

Adding package to Package Control under way.

For windows, what about those of us who have Cygwin or MinGW?
(Not sure of this really works, but figured it was worth a google search: http://www.mingw.org/wiki/FAQ#toc10)

What about fetching the man page from a website repository for windows users ? E.g http://linux.die.net/man/3/memcpy
I use Windows to code mainly for linux apps, plus some of the usual libc call could be useful to fetch.

Xaapyks: Interesting idea with fetching manpages online. Thanks.

Grant: When I wrote this code, I was too lazy to play with MinGW or Cygwin. However, I can give it a try. Or do it with online archive, as Xaapyks suggested.
