Unix man page

    (Or "man page") A part of Unix's
   extensive on-line documentation.  To read a manual page from
   the Unix command line, type:

   	man [-s
] e.g. "man ftp" (the section number can usually be omitted). Pages are traditionally referred to using the notation "page(section)", e.g. ftp(1). Under SunOS (which is fairly typical), Section 1 covers commands, 2 system calls, 3 C library routines, 4 devices and networks, 5 file formats, 6 games and demos, 7 miscellaneous, 8 system administration. Each section has an introduction which can be obtained with, e.g., "man 2 intro". Manual pages are stored as nroff source files. Formatted versions are also usually cached. Man pages for most versions of Unix are available on-line in HTML. Unix manual page: man(1). <Linux man pages>. <Solaris man pages>. (2010-01-19)
