Trying to get Man Pages running under Windows Eclipse Helios, but what should I enter as the Man Pages executable? Is this a zip from the Linux man directories? I do get a popup window, but empty.

Hi, I made a little script to use man pages under windows using linux machine and plink (from PuTTY).
You need to create a key to unattended session.

@echo off

set PATH=%Program Files%\PuTTY;%PATH%
set key=%USERPROFILE%\.ssh\id_rsa.ppk
set cmd="LANG=POSIX man %* 2>&1 | iconv -t CP850"
plink -ssh -l %USERNAME% -i %key% %USERNAME%@localhost %cmd%

You can replace LANG=POSIX to use your language. Ex. LANG=es
