I’m using Emacs on Mac OSX.
Apparently the correct solution for using
man and all the related tools is to make sure your
/etc/man.conf file is correct. Mine was missing the following line:
You can ignore the rest of this page.
Thank you, Phil Hudson.
In my /.bashrc:
# MANPATH # there's no MANPATH by default, and manpath(1) just prints /usr/share/man if [ -z "$MANPATH" ]; then export MANPATH=/opt/local/man:/usr/local/man:/usr/local/share/man:/usr/X11R6/man:/usr/share/man fi
In my /.emacs:
;; man (unless (getenv "MANPATH") (setenv "MANPATH" (with-temp-buffer (insert-file-contents-literally "~/.bashrc") (when (re-search-forward "MANPATH=\\(.*\\)" nil t) (match-string 1)))))
And finally my little rebinding of
C-h f for Perl mode works for modules as well:
(add-hook 'cperl-mode-hook (lambda () (local-set-key (kbd "C-h f") 'cperl-perldoc)))
perldoc which in turn calls
which uses .
