|-d, -display <display>|
|The X server and display you would like to display to.|
|-f, -fn, -font <font-name>|
|The font you would like to use.|
|Use dnd version 0 instead of version 1. Many apps that support Dnd may only support the older version. Use this option to force compatability.|
|-c, -cmd, --command <man-command>|
|This specifies the shell command to use to run man. The %m is replaced with the name of the man page. The default is man -a %m, where -a specifies all man pages: the -a option may not be supported on some systems. Note that you can use coolman cat %m <file-name> to use coolman to just view a regular file.|
|-h, -H, -?, --help|
|Print out commandline options summary.|
|-V, -v, --version|
|Print out version number.|
If Coolman is envoked without arguments, it requests a man page on startup. Typical usage of Coolman would be to open one man page and then double click on key words or words in the SEE ALSO sections of man pages. This will cause Coolman to run man with the word that was double-clicked on. This will create a list of opened man pages, which can be browsed with the Previous and Next buttons. You can search through the text by pressing F7 and entering your search string - searching begins from the second line in the window, and is transparent to nroff formatting. To insert selected text from other applications into an input line, use Shift-Insert. You can also drag text from the man page by first highlighting the text with the mouse, and then dragging from within the highlighted text. Note that Drag and drop may not work if your Dnd version is incompatible. Envoke Coolman with -dnd-old to force compatability.
Finally, function key usage is analogous to Cooledit, eg F10 exits.
You can change the colors of coolman from cooledits configuration file: ~/cedit/.cooledit.ini. The lines of interest would look like this by default:
[Options] option_text_fg_normal = 0 option_text_fg_bold = 17 option_text_fg_italic = 16 option_text_bg_normal = 22 option_text_bg_marked = 25 option_text_bg_highlighted = 12
Cooledit creates this file when it exits, but you can create a file that looks just like this if you dont have cooledit. The numbers represent a 3x3x3 RGB matrix, eg. black is 0, white is 26 and, say, red is 18.
