Open a man(1) page with name and section filtering.

The 'man' keyword will open in your default x-man-page: protocol handler (probably Terminal.app).

The 'hman' keyword will open in Safari (change to your preferred browser by tweaking the BROWSER variable at the top of hman Run Script).

Usage:

man open(1)  # open a specific page man open     # search all sections for pages matching 'open*' man *open    # search all sections for pages matching '*open*' man 2 open   # search section 2 for pages with 'open' in the name
