Thanks, jdporter.

Sorry about the language. Seems in my effort to ensure any/everyone understands what I'm trying to say. I end up using too many words, and ultimately only obscure my message.

I'll work work on it. :)

As you undoubtedly already know
manpath=FreeBSD+9.2-RELEASE
is the key to the chosen OS version of man page to grep for the command.
Knowing what I do about the script, and just now experimenting with your implemented schortcut. The following provides the BSD version for the command rehash
[man://rehash=default]

While that'll help help me maybe that'll help others, should it be documented along with the rest of the man page shortcut info.
Experimenting further, indicates that the same strategy also works for HPUX
[man://rehash=HPUX]
So I guess, for now, that's the magic. Not terribly hard. Maybe you can somehow even improve further. I couldn't know, as I've never seen your code. Just thought I'd mention it.

FWIW My offer still stands, for hosting any variation of man pages you might find advantageous.

Thanks again, jdporter. I hope this helped. :)

UPDATE: I just read your updated docs, and notice my strategy here, differs from the strategy you used to update the docs. Good, huh? Everybody loves having choices/options. :)
Hey. I'm not completely useless. I can be used as a bad example.

    I just discovered some additional information that might be of interest;

    Much in the same way external links here, can be tailored so as to be named, with a pipe. So too, can the man pages here:
    [man://man=default|FreeBSD man pages ROCK!]
    becomes:
    FreeBSD man pages ROCK!

    Cool, huh? :)

      All of our shortcuts support that.
