Man Reader allows quick, convenient, and easy access to the man pages on your system, useful for programmers, system administrators and tweakers. Man pages are available for the Unix commands used mostly in Terminal or when shell scripting. These man pages are normally displayed in Terminal using the "man" command: e.g., "man man" gives you the man page for the man command. However there are problems with this: the man page is displayed to you in your Terminal window page by page and when you have got to the bottom, you have to know to press ‘q’ to get out of the man page display, at which point it disappears

What's New

Version 1.6:
  • Much improved searching for available man pages, including permissions fix for some pages
  • Fixed error with new search term being over-written
  • Sand-boxed version now works just as well as the non-sand-boxed so please switch back to this version


  • OS X 10.7 or later
