Man locates and prints pages of this manual named title in the
specified sections. Title is given in lower case. Each section
is a number; pages marked (2S), for example, belong to chapter
2. If no section is specified, pages in all sections are printed.
Any name from the NAME section at the top of the page will serve
The options are:
Lookman prints the names of all manual sections that contain all of the key words given on the command line.
Sig prints the signature (i.e. C definition) of the functions
given on the command line.
The manual was intended to be typeset; some detail is sacrificed
on text terminals. |
There is no automatic mechanism to keep the indices up to date.
Except for special cases, man doesn't recognize things that should
be run through tbl and/or eqn.
