makebook - Create a file containing the entire manual
makebook bookfile [ -d ] [ options ]
Makebook, a shell script, builds a file containing the entire online manual for subsequent downloading and/or printing.
By default, bookfile is formatted for a PostScript printer (manps is used). Use the -d option to create a dot-matrix formatted book (man is used).
Makebook automatically requests progress (-p) reporting and assigns titles (-t) when generating output. Include options to pass additional options to man or manps.
Since the file created by makebook will be uncommonly large, this script is not accessible to non-root users by default. To curtail users from creating their own books, it is suggested that the administrator create a single bookfile and place it into a public area (e.g. $/pub) so users may download it and print it offline to their own printers.
