man

Read Unix man pages.

This command prompts for a line of text, then runs the Unix "man" command, passing that text as its command line argument, and displays the result in a buffer. (This command also works with the Cygwin environment's "man" command under Windows.)

If you don't use any flags or section names, Epsilon will provide completion on available topics. For example, type "?" to see all man page topics available. Within man page output, you can double-click on a reference to another man page, such as echo(1), or press <Enter> to follow it, or press m to be prompted for another man page topic.

See the man page for the man command itself for information on available flags like -k. Also see the search-man-pages command.
