  1. Download from [download:freedocplugin here]
  2. Install plugin by uploading to your plugins directory
  3. Enable in your trac.ini, by adding freedoc.* = enabled to your [components] section. Like this:
    freedoc.* = enabled
  4. Restart/reload your webserver if running some kind of mod_python, mod_fsgi or something like it.
  5. Enjoy!



To link to a certain man page use syntax like sshd(8) or nc(1)

 1. After every colon at the end of the line there will be an automagic return:
   example# have your commands detected and formatted in pre
   of course you could also use the non-root variant:
   example$ echo "{{{ preserve command syntax till end of line }}}";
 1. Use a somehow more simple *bold* tag
  Note: Will alert your readers to be careful by a drawing the attention using a grey box
 1. Linking to file:README or dir:/usr/local/etc will automatically syntax it.

Important: Will draw a big fat warning altering your users of total disaster
