sounds a bit like pinfo:
gregoa@colleen:~$ apt-cache show pinfo
Maintainer: Christian Kurz <email@example.com>
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.3.2.ds1-4), libncurses5 (>= 5.4-1)
Suggests: lynx, mutt
Description: An alternative info-file viewer
pinfo is an viewer for Info documents, which is based on ncurses.
The key-commands are in the style of lynx.
Most legends have their basis in facts.
