A TeX documentation browser. Invoked from Terminal. Locates the  
documentation file for a given TeX component and launches the  
appropriate viewer application based on file extension. For this,  
uses a database /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/texdoctk/ 
texdoctk.dat associating "component" names with documentation files.

You may try, for example:

	texdoc teTeX
	texdoc kpathsea
	texdoc clsguide
	texdoc hyperref

For some reason, it seems to fail on documentation that is in DVI  
format, like /Library/teTeX/share/texmf.tetex/doc/generic/babel/ 
user.dvi for the babel package, though the database contains the  
appropriate entry. Instead a browser page showing the TeX Catalogue  
Online is shown. Possibly a faulty configuration file somewhere, or a  
permission and ownership problem?
