Man Pages

Man Pages

Post by George Genovezo » Wed, 22 Apr 1998 04:00:00



I just installed the latest slackware and the Man pages are not setup.
The files are in the
usr/man/man1 and the manpath points to usr/man. What do I need to do to
configure
the man pages.

TIA

George

 
 
 

Man Pages

The files in /usr/man/manX are the man pages, there is nothing to configure
about them.
You may even use cat or more to view them.

If you want them nicely formatted install the [n|g]roff package.

1. Standard man pages to "Catted" man pages!

To Anyone Interested:

        How does one take a standard "troff"ed (?) man page that comes
with a package off the net (ending in .1, .2, etc) and turn in into a
compressed, "cat"ted man page (ending in .1.Z, .2.Z, etc) that are
stored in the directory /usr/man/catN (N = 1,2,3,...) that can be read
by the standard man utility that comes with the SLS distribution?  I'm
sure that this is trivial to do, and is probably written down
SOMEWHERE, but I've got only so many hours a day I can spend reading
FAQs and HOWTOs.  Thanx in advance...
