ShaManX is a nifty little OS X utility, still in development
stage; the current version allows you to:
- View the "man" pages of the underlying Unix core (as it's a real pain viewing them in a terminal window).
- Execute shell commands (only those that do not require additional user inputs)
- View some system configuration files.
- OS X 10.0.4 or later
ShaManX is donationware. If you like it, you are encouraged to send me a small donation.
ShaManX is still in development, but it is
pretty stable. Future releases will add more and more functions;
suggestions for new features and bug reports are welcome.
WARNING: Shell commands are powerful, and some are also dangerous. Always be sure of what command you are issuing, always check twice. Don't blame me if you shoot yourself in your feet. If unsure of what you're doing, well don't do it. In no case I will be responsible of damages/loss of data as a consequence of a shell command.
Current version is 0.9d. You can download it here:
