You don't say NIC Card? :)

Converting man pages to info pages is trivial, but not necessarily
portable. Many systems (solaris, hp-ux, irix, etc) don't have
info, but of course we could just distribute both.

OK, I'll get plugging on this unless someone has already started
doing work. I think doing automatic keyword extraction is
important, and like James said earlier, people are lazy so this
is something most will want.

Any status on the win32 port? Just curious what has become of it,
or if anyone had even started it. Thanks!
