An useful editor (Lugaru's Epsilon Programmer's Editor), is running on my localhost at port 8888 (i.e., localhost:8888), when I open the offline help through the application.

Below is a screenshot: enter image description here

And below is the netstat result:

All I want to know, is just to find, where are the man files are stored in the disk. Is there any way to do this?

  • Welcome.html will contain links to the man files. That way you can find them. – Aulis Ronkainen Feb 14 at 12:48
  • @Ramhound: No luck there is no such file, in the entire system drive...I already have tried this option before posting this question... – Cylian Feb 14 at 12:51

    They are not necessarily stored as separate files. They may well be bundled in a single file or even embedded into the server application itself. – Daniel B Feb 14 at 13:02
  • Your question makes no mention of that fact – Ramhound Feb 14 at 13:09

You could try to capture filesystem activity with free sysinternal tool procmon, with a filter that is only showing paths containing ".html". After configuring procmon start to click a few different pages of the webpage. You should now see the webserver process accessing those html files with full path to file.

  • Nice tool, but it doesn't solve my purpose...:) – Cylian Feb 14 at 14:41
