    :information_source: Extract help text from builtin commands and man pages

    I particularly wanted to lookup documentation for command options from my terminal (instead of the website), so wrote a script for it: https://github.com/learnbyexample/command_help ... Have a long pending todo list, but despite the issues, the tool is good enough for my needs.

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
