I've tried to install cppman in Fedora 19 or Linux mint 15 and it installs successfully. But when I try to use it I get the error:

Python IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied

I've installed it in Ubuntu 12.04 and had no problem. Can you help me?

Update: I fixed this problem, but I have a new problem. when for example I enter cppman cout the output shown is not in right format:

       std::cout - Standard output stream

       extern ostream cout;

       Object of class ostream that represents the standard output stream oriented to narrow characters (of type

       ). It corresponds to the C stream stdout.

It seems that I need to install or configure something. Can you help me?

Is that really the complete error? No backtrace? – Gilles Jul 15 '13 at 20:59
@Gilles: Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. – Farzam Jul 15 '13 at 21:05
What method did you use to install cppman? pip install or was it a RPM in the repository? – slm Jul 16 '13 at 2:21
Gilles is referrring to a TraceBack which is a path through the code that was running when the error was encountered. You can see an example in this SO Q&A: stackoverflow.com/questions/13246114/… – slm Jul 16 '13 at 2:23
@slm: with pip install – Farzam Jul 16 '13 at 6:39
