CTAN update: texdoc
This is a big update for Texdoc since 2012! There are two big features in Texdoc 3.0. 1. New option parser Now, you can specify multiple options like: $ texdoc -vsl foo (this is equivalent to specifying "-v -s -l") Please note that the behavior of the short option "-d" have been changed. It *requires* an argument without "=", e.g.: $ texdoc -d score bar (this is equivalent to specifying "--debug=score") We added a new option "-D" as a short version of "--debug=all". Please see the help text for more details. 2. Fuzzy search When the normal search can't find any document in TeX Live, Texdoc will execute fuzzy search on the list of package names without user-interactions. The results of fuzzy search are shown by "info" message. (you can see that with the command line option "-v") The default allowance of Levenshtein distance is 5. You can change this default value by specifying "fuzzy_level" in your texdoc.cnf: fuzzy_level = 3 If "fuzzy_level" set to 0, the feature will be disabled. This update also contains several small bug fixes and improvements. For the quick understanding of the new functions, the slide I used for a talk in BachoTeX 2018 is available from Speaker Deck: https://speakerdeck.com/wtsnjp/texdoc3 One more thing (IMPORTANT for distributors): from v3.0, we won't include Data.tlpdb.lua (the pseudo cache file) in our repository. If your distribution do not ship the tlpdb, you have to pre-generate the pseudo cache file to make Texdoc workable. For further information, please visit our GitHub repository: https://github.com/TeX-Live/texdoc

texdoc – Documentation access for TeX Live
texdoc is a Lua script providing easy access to the documentation in TeX Live: PDF, DVI, plain text files, and more. Viewing and other configuration can be extensively customized. It is distributed with TeX Live; MiKTeX provides a program by the same name to do the same job, but its implementation is unrelated.
