I've put up a preview of man.cgi as found in our repository:
The syntax for the "whatis" and "apropos" functions are as given in the
repository apropos(1) and whatis(1) (regular expressions, logical
operators, and so on). However, this syntax is backwards-compatible
with the legacy apropos(1) and whatis(1).
To create this, I did the following in the mdocml source directory after
enabling cgi-bin in Apache (this is on OpenBSD-5.0, as manuals are
installed with sources):
% sudo ./mandocdb # recreate the mandocdb(8)s
% sudo ./catman -f # cache manuals in the chroot() jail
% sudo make installcgi # install CGI and CSS
(Ok, I didn't do this exactly because BSD.lv uses virtual hosts. In
reality, I ran "catman -f -o /usr/vhosts/mdocml.bsd.lv/www/cache, then
created an .htaccess file in the cgi-bin setting CACHE_DIR to the above.
But I use the above on my stock OpenBSD box (plus CGI) all the time --
no need for any more than the above.)
P.S., you'll also pull up my /usr/local/man directory in those results.
