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 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 sec-
          tions 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

          -b   Print the pages using nroff and send them to plumber(4)
               for display 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.

          ficed on text terminals.

          Except for special cases, man doesn't recognize things that
          should be run through tbl and/or eqn.
