Help2man is a program that converts the output of standard --help and --version command-line arguments into a manual page automatically.
It lets developers include a manual page in their distribution without having to maintain that document. Since Texinfo is the official documentation format of the GNU project, this also provides a way to generate a placeholder man page pointing to that resource while still providing some useful information.
DocumentationUser guide included.
This is a GNU package:help2man
