Display a Manual
Finally, let's try out one more very helpful command. If we want to learn more about a command, we can read its manual. We do this with the command man. As an example, look at the man page for the emacs command. Type man emacs.
john-williams@codermerlin:~/Merlin$ man emacs
The screen is filled with information about the emacs command. While a man page is displayed, we can navigate by using the following keys:
- Typing f moves us forward one page in the manual
- Typing b moves us backward one page in the manual
- Typing q quits (exits the manual)
Exit the manual now.
