Manpower 1.0 released

Utility maker Code by Kevin has released a new tool for Mac owners running a Unix shell, Manpower. The program assists with the "man" command, which describes the purpose and usage of various built-in Unix tools; this however is limited to a fixed font size, and a single pane of text at a time. Manpower claims to improve on this by expanding to a three-pane interface, similar to an e-mail client.

Users can additionally search and browse through man commands using a graphical interface, and save documents as necessary. Manpower is a Universal Binary for Mac OS X 10.4 or later, and costs $20. A free 30-day trial version is also available.
