[SOLVED] Arch Wiki on shell?

I'm wondering, is there any way / any program to extract / download an arch wiki page while in the shell? This would be a complementary feature to man, for example.

I've tried to search the forums and google it for a while, but I can't think of the right words (besides "arch, wiki, shell, command line")

I'm thinking of  a command "archwiki fluxbox", for example, which would extract the fluxbox page from the arch wiki and display it (conveniently, man/info style) in my shell. Does such program exist?

Just use a text-based browser - links, lynx, w3m, etc.
