Sigh.  Is it at least POSIX?
If `man -w' isn't available the $MANPATH or some standard path could be
used.  But I wouldn't implement more sophisticated searchings.


The name `groffview' is quite ok, but it's a bit long.
Some shortcuts:
- groview
- groffiew
- groffiu
- groviu
- grovu

How about `groffer'?
