Introduction to UNIX for Web Developers
The "man" Utility
We are going to go over quite a few utilities
in the next few days, certaintly the ones you will use 95% of the
time. However, there is no way that we could possibly cover all of
the available commands on all the available systems. Thus, we will make
mention of an excellent resource on all UNIX systems that allows you to get the
documentation for any installed utility. This is the "man"
The "man" utility provides basic documentation for
utilities and is as easy to access as typing "man" at the command line as
shown below for the "ls" command.
