    You could try

    man <subject> > lp0 (or whatever your printer is)

    that might give a terrible output, especialy if your line length on the printer dosnt fit the line length in the man pages..
    You could use `man2html` and then print it from your favorit browser..

    Re: How do u print manpages frm commandline termin

    ??? Very new to linux. I have a printer lexmar z11 that i use within win98 but don't know how to setup the printer in linux and although i have wmaker under root and enlightenment w/genome support as usr1 and kde under usr2 - I can't even get help to display in a browser (Nautilaus) right. It says that help can not be found in a path w/ c in it. I think the html display points to c drive and I have linux on hde2 and c for win98 on C:? How does one change the path to display html? In anycase I will go ahead and try your suggestions just to see what happens. Thanks

    There you go:

    man whatever | col -b > whatever.txt

    this will put the whole man page about whatever to a txt file with the same format you see on screen named whatever.txt

    You can then print it, edit it, etc. Happy reading
