Change man pages to text file, pdf file


Sometimes it is really handy if you could convert the manual pages in unix/linux to formats that can help you read them outside the terminal. The most useful formats are text formats and pdf versions of file.

To change the man pages into text file:

Open Terminal and type the following command (If you want to convert the cd command’s man file into a text file):
man cd | col -b > output-file.txt
