Using man to view manual page which is a file name many need to run tbl.
This is for the new man page feature where the filename is on the
command line (and not the man page name).
I didn't look at source yet, but it appears it needs to detect or
know when to run tbl first.
If tbl is needed, there is junk and man page is hard to understand.
man /usr/share/man/man1/ksh.1
and look at the "Compound" commands section for "center;"
or look at "The set command" for "expand;"
