WoMan provides three user interfaces for finding and formatting man pages:
The topic and filename interfaces support completion in the usual way.
The topic interface is generally the most convenient for regular use,
although it may require some special setup, especially if your machine
does not already have a conventional
man installation (which
WoMan tries to detect).
The simplest filename interface command
always be used with no setup at all (provided WoMan is installed and
loaded or set up to autoload).
The automatic interface always requires special setup.
By default, WoMan ignores case in file pathnames only when it seems
appropriate. Microsoft Windows users who want complete case
independence should set the special NTEmacs variable
t and use all lower case when
setting WoMan file paths.
