#StackBounty: #linux #web-apps What website provides man pages where the command options are linkable?

Bounty: 50


Often when writing something related to Linux commands I want to mention the use of an option of a command.

For example, I could write something like:

You could use the tail -f <file> command to get a scrolling log, here’s more information on the -f option.

I can link to various websites that show the full man page of tail, but I cannot find a website where I can link to the description of the -f option directly.
The recipient of the message always needs to scroll or do a search for the option I refer to.


Is there a man page website that provides anchors or tags for the command options such that I can link to it directly? Ideally I would be able to link to something like somesite.org/man/commandname#option-name.
