debman extracts a Debian package into a temporary directory and displays manual pages from it. If the -f option is used, it will use a local .deb file; if the -p option is used, it will download the named package using debget. If a version number is appended with “=” to the package name, the package of that version will be used (if known to APT).

2. Specify a package version to download:
# debman -p package_name=version command_name
3. Read a man page in a `.deb` file:
