retkman(1) A utility to restart the tkman information viewer




If you change your MANPATH, either manually or as a side effect of some program, say, a modules system, you can rerun TkMan(1) to pick up the new paths by quitting it and restarting. The script retkman provides a command that can be used as part of an alias to automatically rerun TkMan(1) as necessary. If there are multiple instances of TkMan running on different machines, the one restarted is the one on the same machine from which retkman was invoked.


retkman is part of the tkman(1) package, by Tom Phelps.

This manpage was written by Yann Dirson for Debian GNU/Linux, by including text from the tkman-help.html. I hope it is accurate enough.
