.SH DESCRIPTION
.B debman
extracts a Debian package into a temporary directory and displays
manual pages from it. If the
.B \-f
option is used, it will use a local
.I .deb
file; if the
.B \-p
option is used, it will download the named package using
.BR debget .
If a version number is appended with "=" to the package name, the
package of that version will be used (if known to APT).
.SH ENVIRONMENT
.B debman
intentionally ignores any
.RB $ MANPATH
environment variable that might be set, and constructs its own such that
only manual pages within the package will be displayed.
.SH AUTHOR
