Viewing man pages

One important Unix command tells you everything you ever wanted to know about Unix commands and files: the man command. It displays information about commands and files documented in the on-line manual pages. These man pages are included with every version of Unix.

The man pages present information about a command one page at a time. You can use keystrokes to advance to the next line or page of the man pages. You must quit the man pages feature to enter other Unix commands.
