MAN(1)									MAN(1)

       man, lookman, sig - print or find pages of this manual

       man [ -bnpPStw ] [ section ...  ] title ...

       lookman key ...

       sig function ...

       Man  locates  and prints pages of this manual named title in the speci‐
       fied sections.  Title is given in lower case.  Each section is  a  num‐
       ber;  pages  marked (2S), for example, belong to chapter 2.  If no sec‐
       tion is specified, pages in all sections are printed.   Any  name  from
       the NAME section at the top of the page will serve as a title.

       The options are:

       -n     (Default) Print the pages on the standard output using nroff.

       -b     Print the pages using nroff and send them to plumber(4) for dis‐
	      play in the editor.

       -p     Run proof(1) on the specified man pages.

       -P     Run page(1) on the specified man pages.

       -S     Do not search the manual indices	for  the  names.   Only	 print
	      pages whose file names match the names.

       -t     Run troff(1) and send its output to standard output.

       -w     Print the names of the man page source files.

       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.

	      troff source for manual; this page is /sys/man/1/man

	      indices searched to find pages corresponding to titles

	      command to make an index for a given section

	      index for lookman


       page(1), proof(1)

       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.
