MAPPING MAN MANPATH

MAPPING MAN

In Solaris, indexing the
man pages:

1. Set your MANPATH variable
to include all your man pages
to be indexed:

Eg. #> MANPATH=/usr/man:/usr/dt/man:/opt/VRTSvxvm/man; export MANPATH

2. Use catman command to index
the man pages:

#> catman -w

Now you can use 'whatis' command
to know what a command does and
'man -k' commands to search for
a keyword in man pages.
