Color man Pages http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/tech-tip-color-man-pages To add a bit of color to your man pages install the most pager. For most DEB based distros:

 $ sudo apt-get install most

For most RPM based distros:

 $ yum install most

Failing these, get the source here.

Now set the pager used by man and try running man:

 $ export MANPAGER="/usr/bin/most -s
 # or export MANPAGER="/usr/local/bin/most -s"
 $ man bash
