Emacs for man reading

You can read man pages in emacs easily, but if you want to replace the man command with emacs you have to play a few tricks:

A script for starting emacs in man mode:

emacs -nw --eval="(man \"$1\")" -q -l ~/.emacs-man

Where .emacs-man is your setup for reading man-pages in emacs, one thing you probably want in this is:

(setq Man-notify-method 'bully )

To open the man page as the only buffer.

Emacs Clones

My requirements: vertical split, goto-line, unicode.


I am currently using this where I cannot use emacs or if I need to edit big files. It supports most of the features I use, but it is acting weird sometimes.
