I mean brew man, not man brew.

It says:

Fetching: hpricot-0.8.6.gem (100%) Building native extensions. This could take a while... Successfully installed hpricot-0.8.6 Fetching: rdiscount-2.1.8.gem (100%) Building native extensions. This could take a while... Successfully installed rdiscount-2.1.8 Fetching: mustache-1.0.1.gem (100%) Successfully installed mustache-1.0.1 Fetching: ronn-0.7.3.gem (100%) Successfully installed ronn-0.7.3 4 gems installed Writing manpages to /usr/local/share/man/man1

So what have I installed? What does it do?

From Homebrew issue #40735, what would the command "brew man cask" do? (which can be found by simply googling "brew man")

brew man generates the Homebrew manpage from markdown, using these gems to do the translation.

  • What does "Homebrew manpage" mean? Contents of man brew or all the man pages of all the brew packages? Also, what's markdown? – seeker_of_bacon Jun 22 '15 at 7:21
  • @seeker_of_bacon Please do some research on your own and only post questions here which cannot be answered by simply googling (as your second question) – oarfish Jun 22 '15 at 11:08
