    I’d suggest using one of the Bash clients.

    Note that if you follow their installation instructions you’ll still need to set permissions via sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin/tldr or similar.

      sudo chmod +x $location is in their instructions. I suppose you’d need the mode fully spelled out if you have a conservative umask (like the popular choice 077) and aren’t running tldr from a root shell.

        Sure, but that didn’t work on my machine when I followed their instructions. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    2. 1

      I prefer to read man pages directly, but I agree that the ton of extensions to standard commands make them hard to read.

      What I suggest is to also have a look at man.openbsd.org pages which are often simpler, and go to POSIX man pages if more detail are needed.

      Within the man page, have a look at the EXAMPLE section, which looks like the tldr pages.
