man’s Special Xcode Support

Wolf Rentzsch:

So Apple’s man calls xcselect_get_manpaths() to dynamically add Xcode-specific paths to man's search paths. Sneaky.


libxcselect.dylib is key to Apple’s technique of providing stubs binaries at standard locations that do little else but look up the actual tool locations inside /Applications/ and execute them.
