ManOpen is a MacOS X GUI application for viewing Unix manual pages, which is the standard documentation for Unix command line programs, programmer libraries, and other system information. It can open files directly or be given titles, in which case it will display the output from the `man' command-line program. An apropos interface is also provided, which is basically a quick-and-dirty search of the man page databases. Services are provided to other applications to open selected files/titles or do apropos searches using the selected text.

* Open and Apropos panels can be closed with escape or Command-. keys
* Find Previous shortcut on MacOS X is now Command-Shift-g, as per Apple UI guidelines
* Declares 1, 2, 3, 4, ... , 9 file extensions as man pages on Mac OS X
* Worked around MacOS X 10.3 man(1) change so that the Man Search Path works for Apropos searches again
