Command Reference: man-get-flags

Parses man page files for command line flags


Sometimes you might want to programmatically search man pages for any supported flag. Particularly if you’re writing a dynamic autocompletion. man-get-flags does this and returns a JSON document.

You can either pipe a man page to man-get-flags, or pass the name of the command as a parameter.


<stdin> -> man-get-flags -> <stdout>

man-get-flags command -> <stdout>
