How do I add man pages to man path for new application ?

Post by Jayesh Kamda » Wed, 07 May 1997 04:00:00



Hi,

Can any one tell me how to install/add to man_path man pages for the new
application you install on the machine.  I installed HP Openview and
Remedu on my Sun Solraris 2.5.1 but can't get to their man pages.

Thanks,
Jayesh Kamdar

In csh:
        setenv MANPATH /remedy_manpath:$MANPATH

In ksh:
        export MANPATH=/remedy_manpath:$MANPATH

In sh:
        MANPATH=/remedy_manpath:$MANPATH
        export MANPATH

The latter works in "ksh" as well, of course (and if you want it on one
line, you can do

        MANPATH=/remedy_manpath:$MANPATH; export MANPATH

).

Or even (Korn shell)

export MANPATH=/remedy_manpath:$MANPATH

...which is precisely what the poster to whom I was replying had already
said!

My point is that

        MANPATH=/remedy_manpath:$MANPATH; export MANPATH

works in all Bourne-compatible shells, including but not limited to the
Korn shell, unlike

        export MANPATH=/remedy_manpath:$MANPATH

which doesn't work in the Bourne shell.

 
 
 

1. How do I add man pages to man path for new app

There are many ways to add.
1. If the man pages are in your home directory you can add the your man directory
    to MANPATH variable and export it
    ex:
         MANPATH=:/usr/man:/usr/contrib/man:/usr/local/man:/home/myhome/man1
         export MANPATH
2. If you have a root permission you can add the your man directory  to MANPATH
variable in /etc/profile file and then export.

3. If you do have root passwd, You can add MANPATH to your .profile.
        MANPATH=:/usr/man:/usr/contrib/man:/usr/local/man:/home/myhome/man1
        export MANPATH
    1 and 3 steps  which will allow only you to view.

Hope i am correct.
Good luck
