man page
Last modified: Friday, June 21, 2002 

Short for manual page, a page of on-line documentation in UNIX systems. Every UNIX command, utility, and library function has an associated man page that you can view by entering the command:

> man <command name>

For example, to find out about the man command itself, you would enter:

> man man

If you don't know the name of the command, but only the general topic, you can use the apropos command,

> apropos <topic>

which lists all the man pages related to the specified topic.

Man pages are stored as nroff files.
