Where to find required documentation on the web?

This post is about man pages as a class.

apt show debian-goodies
debman     - Easily view man pages from a binary .deb without extracting
                [man, apt* (via debget)]

So...  ~$ dman packagename   # will fetch the manpages as though they
were local.


Thank you. Looks interesting.
1st didn't work even after installing debian-goodies.
Suspect operator. Leaving now. will pursue in morning.
