Re: catman pages and emacs man

   But why does it about 20 seconds (on a Pentium with 16 MB) before
   the man page for bash shows up?  Is that for groffing the man page
   or for finding memory for this buffer because the pager eats it all
   at once?

emacs is doing a lot of processing the hard way.  For example, it runs
an interpreted program to remove emphasis, when col could do it much
