User Manual UDO > Output Formats Index


The Manualpage is an ASCII format where text styles are made by inserting backspace sequences. It is used for short software descriptions for Unix systems. For longer descriptions you should use the GNU Texinfo format.

How can I set the page length for manpages?

You can set the lines each page of a manpage should have with the command !man_lpp (lpp means lines per page).

How can I set the program type for manpages?

Use the switch !man_type X where X is displayed inside brackets in the headlines of the manpage.

Why does'nt UDO create a table of contents?

It is very unusual to use a table of contents in a manpage. For short program description — you only should use manpages for — tables of contents don't make sense, too.
