Okay.  Thanks for the help!

I have been learning Tcl with Tk the past few days since my brother
told me about a minimalistic Tcl/Tk pager program that was posted onto
the website.  As a GUI toolkit, I think that Tk is very
graceful, even though it's old.  Writing a Tcl/Tk man page viewer that
doesn't depend on rman might be a fun practice for me.
