Is there a way to automate the conversion of info pages into man pages?
I'd really like to see something along those lines, as I don't
particularly like the 'info' interface as much as man's.
I suppose if I bothered to learn the actual syntax to man pages and info
pages, it would not be difficult to write a perl script that does this.
However, I just wanted to know whether or not it's been done already ;)
