man-preview.el

man-preview.el displays a preview of a manpage in an Emacs buffer, either for use when editing it or just browsing manpage files.

The best feature is that a re-preview of the same buffer keeps the preview at the same line position, so if you edit the source then re-run you're usually still close to what you were looking at before. The preview is only plain text from nroff, there's nothing for troff previewing.

man-preview is free software (free as in freedom), published under the terms of the GNU General Public License (v3 or up).
