apropos

apropos Displays a list of manual pages by keyword lookup.
apropos [-M <path>] [-m <path>] <keyword1> <keyword2> ...

-M <path> Overrides the list of standard directories where apropos searches for the database, whatis.db. The path specified must be a colon-separated list of directories. The search path may also be specified by the MANPATH environment variable.
-m <path> Adds to the list of standard search directories. The path specified must be a colon-separated list of directories. These directories are searched before the standard list or directories specified by -M or MANPATH.
