 Agreed that apropos -p is pretty much useless for me, due to all the
 ESC codes being displayed. E.g., if TERM=3Dxterm and PAGER=3Dless, =
 -p usb displays:
 ESC[4musbESC[24m (ESC[4m4ESC[24m)       ESC[4mUniversal Serial Bus =
 ...ESC[1mUSBESC(BESC[m serial adapter uchcom(4) WinChipHead CH341/340 =
 based ESC[1mUSBESC(BESC[m serial adapter ucom(4) ESC[1mUSBESC(BESC[m tty =
 support ucycom(4) Cypress microcontroller based ESC[1mUSBESC(BESC[m =
 serial adapter uftdi(4) FT8U100AX ESC[1mUSBESC(BESC[m serial adapter =
 ugensa(4) ESC[1mUSBESC(BESC[m generic serial adapter uhmodem(4) =
 I think if -p is given, or stdout is not a tty, no terminal control
 codes should be output (or perhaps it should do strikeouts using
 ^H--that's what man/mandoc/groff does).
