miniman is a minimal man page generator, with a focus on semantic tagging of text.

It comes from the idea that man pages authors should not focus on markup, but rather on the content of the manual. It is the job of man to make sure that the page is displayed in a proper and coherent manner.

To read more about how and why this was born, have a look at mdoc_thoughts.md. It also contains a small snippet of miniman code.

This is highly experimental and still a work in progress, and any feedback is highly appreciated.
