MAN(1)                                                     MAN(1)

     NAME
          man - print sections of this manual

     SYNOPSIS
          man [ option ... ] [ chapter ] title ...

     DESCRIPTION
          Man locates and prints the section of this manual named
          title in the specified chapter. (In this context, the word
          `page' is often used as a synonym for `section'.)  The title
          is entered in lower case.  The chapter number does not need
          a letter suffix.  If no chapter is specified, the whole man-
          ual is searched for title and all occurrences of it are
          printed.

          Options and their meanings are:

          -t   Phototypeset the section using troff(1).

          -n   Print the section on the standard output using
               nroff(1).

          -k   Display the output on a Tektronix 4014 terminal using
               troff(1) and tc(1).

          -e   Appended or prefixed to any of the above causes the
               manual section to be preprocessed by neqn or eqn(1); -e
               alone means -te.

          -w   Print the path names of the manual sections, but do not
               print the sections themselves.

          (default)
               Copy an already formatted manual section to the termi-
               nal, or, if none is available, act as -n.  It may be
               necessary to use a filter to adapt the output to the
               particular terminal's characteristics.

          Further options, e.g. to specify the kind of terminal you
          have, are passed on to troff(1) or nroff. Options and
          chapter may be changed before each title.

          For example:

               man man

          would reproduce this section, as well as any other sections
          named man that may exist in other chapters of the manual,
          e.g. man(7).

     BUGS
          The manual is supposed to be reproducible either on a photo-
          typesetter or on a terminal.  However, on a terminal some
          information is necessarily lost.
