I have no questions to ask only to those who visit the forum.
So why the post?

I discovered this way to view the file system folders in the browser informing those interested or curious to use this method. Other criticisms? I'm available.

Thanks, sg-1. It is a good tip, an efficient way for curious learners to browse the filesystem.
And without accidentally doing any damage, too, as there's no way to edit any files from within a web browser.

That's pretty cool. Thanks for the tip, sg-1.

"Did you install groff?"
Do you mean as an alternative to reading man pages in Firefox? Groff is interesting, though in my case, examples on usage would be helpful. I cant get much from the man pages...OK I think I understand your question. Yes I did install Groff. After reading man man pages I see this:

Code: Select all

 -H[browser], --html[=browser]
              This  option  will cause groff to produce HTML output, and will display that output
              in a web browser.  The choice of browser is  determined  by  the  optional  browser
              argument if one is provided, by the $BROWSER environment variable, or by a compile-
              time default if that is unset (usually lynx).  This option  implies  -t,  and  will
              only work with GNU troff.
True freedom is never asking the question; Am I free?
