Having to read man & info pages to then compile the list of command line arguements requires separate terminal windows or a notepad to write down the -switched you would like to use. This is a proposal for a project to dynamically parse man and info pages; prefering the latter; to allow the cursor to select -switches.

If the man pages suggest [args] will prompt the user to specifiy them. When the [args] prompt is brought up it allows useage of the find command to locate the path. Supports piping in which case the man/info pages for the piped command are brought up allowing further usage of the dynamic context builder.
nman is the command line version and gnman is the graphical version of the builder.
