A new man viewer: oman

I usually find myself searching the commands manuals online, just because it's more confortable to navigate and scroll them in this way than in the terminal.

Then I asked myself: why couldn't it just to be as confortable to view locally than online?

So I created oman, which displays a command manual in the most confortable way.

If the session is graphical it displays the manual as a website, with a color scheme easy for the eyes. If the session is non graphical it displays it as with man.

But even better: if the command is not installed, it automatically searches the manual online and displays it.

The output looks like:

Enjoy!
