Ever wanted to create .pdf files from man(ual) pages? It’s easy to do. Open a console and type:

Code:

man foo | enscript -o foo.ps | ps2pdf foo.ps [filename.pdf]

where foo is the manual page you want to create as a .pdf file. You can call foo.ps anything you want, but it must have the .ps extension. The optional [filename.pdf] allows you to create the resulting .pdf file with a different name (otherwise, the default foo.pdf will be created).
