Changing Word-wrap and Text Attributes in Man Pages
I'm not dead certain about Debian as my terminal emulator might alsso affect
matters, but I do know that in SunOS it tends to format man-pages kind of
annoyingly. It cuts lines mid-word, in stead of moving the word that would
be split completely in the next line. How's this in Debian by default, and
where would I change a setting like this?
Needless to say I far prefer the style in which it wraps on word-boundaries
only, as clipping stuff on mid-word affects the pronounciation in most
speech synths. This is especially apparent if using some kind of a
continuous screen review mode as in Yasr. Also, speaking of customizability,
as it is hard to get at attributes of text in most screen readres, can I
change bold, italic, underline and bullets in man pages to more verbal
equivalents such as an HTML-like representation? e.g. this is <b> bold </b>
sorry for yet another noob question.
