what is this?

This is a small experiment made by Matt Stockton to play around with Flask, Python, Heroku, and various libraries.

manPage.me is a quick way to understand arguments being passed to linux commands. Instead of grep'ing through a manpage, just type the command here and see what each argument does.

Only a small set of commands are currently supported (see the footer). I'll keep adding more as time goes on.

Some queries might not work well for you. The regex / parsing needs some refinement, and I'm not handling piped commmands or other fancy things yet. Drop me an email if you have suggestions or questions.

Fork the project on GitHub
