I have been trying to find a way for the OS X Terminal to accept the mouse input to scroll in the man pages.
I have installed SIMBL and MouseTerm but this does not enable scrolling in the man pages. Any sugestions?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
The amount of the man page that you can see at one time is determined by the buffer size. Here is how to change it.
After much trial and error, I have enabled scrolling in vim, but not for man pages.
Append to your ~/.vimrc
The following blog shows how to enable scrolling in vim using iTerm2. It unfortunately does not work on man pages.
As a work around, I would suggest:
*NIXmanual - A widget you enable on your Mac that cointains the man pages
linuxmanpages.com - A website will all linux man pages
Use the standard vim keys 'hjkl' or Shift Page Up andShift Page Down
