CSC373/406: linux: Unix online Manual [26/42] Previous pageContentsNext page

To view the unix online manual, you need to know the exact name of a manual topic; e.g., fork. In some cases you may not know the exact name. You can try the man command with the -k option (for keyword)

$ man -k fork

The output shows all manual topic names in the first column related to the keyword entered (fork).

Once you know the name of the manual page for a topic use the man command again with that specific topic:

$ man fork
