DESCRIPTION

This is a Unix manual pages viewer for [x]vile written using the vile-perl-api. On invocation, it prompts the user for the keyword for which to show the manual page, and provides an initial choice of the "punctuated-word" and the "whole-word" under the cursor. The user can cycle through the default initial choices by hitting the TAB key.

The manual page is presented in a new buffer unless a buffer for that manual page already exists. The manual page is formatted with bold and underline attributes as appropriate.
