The silverstripe-manpage module provides a new page type that imports a man page. The full path to a specific man page is required and must be specified in the CMS for every page.

The man page is converted with the "groff" command. The exact syntax is:

groff -Thtml -man PATH

where PATH is the required path. Everything needed to get the above command working must be installed.

The generated HTML is massaged again with string and DOM manipulation to have a decent integration with SilverStripe.

For better results, a theme that supports CSS specific for this module (such as silverstripe-treeish) is suggested.
