`help2man' is a tool for automatically generating simple manual pages
from program output.

It is intended to provide an easy way for software authors to include
a manual page in their distribution without having to maintain that

Given a program which produces resonably standard `--help' and
`--version' outputs, `help2man' will attempt to re-arrange that output
into something which resembles a manual page.


The current version is available from:


 * Support for generating localised manual pages has been added (--locale
   option).  Currently supported locales are French and Polish.

 * Check for errors writing to output page.
