Since 'man' pages for commands all have the same extension
('.1'), it seems to me that it should be possible to write a
batch file that calls 'bash' that 'invokes' man for the page?
This would allow you to double click a 'man 1' page, and voila, a
'cmd.exe'/'bash.exe' window would appear with the man page
As it turns out, there are several things like this that I want
to do. So far, haven't been able to figure out how to do it.
Anybody solved this problem or "proved" it is unsolvable?
