*NIX Manual helps you bring some style to your coding habits. *NIX manual provides a clean and simple interface for performing look-ups on commonly (and, more importantly, not so commonly) used commands. It stores preferences for font and a customizable set of colors and includes 9 attractive pre-made color sets. Pages are neatly-formatted and highlighted based upon your color preferences. *NIX manual performs man page lookups either locally or remotely through freeSBD.org, with several search options to make finding what you need even easier. If you're familiar with Terminal, you'll feel right at home, with support for more...

What's New

Version 2.0:
  • Command history (pseudo-tabs); Manage many man pages at once
  • Improved parsing and text formatting
  • Improved color formatting and optional transparency
  • Section and keyword options on frontside
  • Fixed truncation bug on local lookups
  • Ability to extend the local MANPATH environment variable

Requirements

It works great. Just put the widget in your Widget folder. Make sure you copy the right one there. Tiger 10.4.1 seems to create two widgets for each file extraction. Make sure you copy the one that has some size to it, not Zero Bytes. This widget works well for me.

drag it onto your desktop from the widgets bar - then it will work.

Hmmm, I tried on both my powerbook and power mac, and while it does unzip, double clicking the widget doesn't seem to load it... The only thing I can think of, is that I'm running HFS+ Case Sensitive...

Any ideas?

Timothy,
Try relocating the .widget file to ~/library/widgets I've had this problem in the past, too and that has always seemed to solve it.

I've received this report from a few others as well. The file system is the culprit. I'm not sure what issue causes it not to run, but from what others have told me, the glitch isn't isolated to my widget in particular.

In the future perhaps I'll have time to look into it, but for now case sensetive systems aren't supported. Sorry!

Just a note: version 2.0 fixes the case-sensitive filesystem problems.
