Name
       apropos - locate commands by keyword lookup

Syntax
       apropos keyword...

Description
       The command shows which manual sections contain instances of any of the
       given keywords in their title.  Each word is considered separately  and
       the case of letters is ignored.	Words that are part of other words are
       listed.	Thus, looking for the word compile hits all instances of `com‐
       piler' also.

       If the line starts `name(section) ...' you can do `man section name' to
       get the documentation for it.  The following  command  line  lists  all
       commands that have to do with formatting:
       apropos format

       To  then	 access	 the reference page for the printf subroutine that you
       see listed, type:
       man 3s printf

       The command is actually just the -k option to the command.
