There is an error in getBigList...

$pipe = popen('man -k a', 'r');

Seems to do a search for every page with a keyword containting a...

Which results in this many results under Solaris 9:

6721 man pages

Changed to:

$pipe = popen('man -k \'\'', 'r');

We get this many results:

7116 man pages

Very nice code I love the base you've shared out to work with!

I was going for a letter that I thought would appear in pretty much every man page, so I could get the biggest list possible. Your solution is brilliant! I didn't even think of that (obviously)...

This will definitely go in the next update.

Thanks again!

Andy
