catman

catman

catman Creates formatted files for the online manual reference.
catman [-knpsw] [-M <directory>] [<sections>]

-k Ignores errors from nroff when building man pages.
-n Does not create the whatis database.
-p Prints what would have been done, but does not actually do it.
-s Works silently. Does not echo commands as they are executed. Ignored if -p is specified.
-w Creates only the whatis database.
-M <directory> Updates the manual pages in the <directory> specified.
The optional <sections> argument is a string containing the numbers of the sections to be regenerated. For example, if <sections> is 138, sections 1, 3, and 8 are regenerated.
When manual pages are regenerated, catman also rebuilds the whatis database.
