|man2web.conf - man2web configuration file.|
man2web.conf contains configuration directives for man2web. It is usually located in /usr/local/etc.
All directives are upper case, followed by whitespace, followed by the value. If a directive is not specified in the file, the compile time default will be used. A directive with no argument will disable the use of the default value.
Each line in the file can be either a directive (see DIRECTIVES below), a blank line, or a comment (a line starting with #).
Specify the program used for apropos (keyword) searches. This is typically apropos or man -k.
Specify the MANPATH that is passed to man (if the MANPATH_SWITCH is defined) and is searched when generating section indexes.
The switch used to pass the MANPATH to man.
This is usually man, but on some systems you may need to pass extra flags to the man command to get output that is formatted correctly (e.g. on MacOS X, this needs to be set to man -P col -x to get properly aligned output).
Add a section entry for use in making the cover page, the search form, section indexes, and links to other man pages when outputting a man page. There should be one for every section of the manual.
The format of the entry is:
SECTION <pseudo section> <real section> <description>
The section that should be displayed in the cover page and search form.
The real section that the pseudo section maps to. On some systems (MacOS X), a sub section cannot be specified when looking for man pages (i.e. man -S 3x wresize does not work, but man -S 3 wresize does).
A free form text description to display on the cover page.
Specify the switch used to pass the section to man (typically -s or -S).
Specify the style sheet of generated pages with this. This can be used to change the appearance of links, bold text, or italic text. See man2web.conf.default included with the distribution for the default values.
This is used to disable certain features:
Disable apropos lookups
Disable section indexes
