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 will be filled with information about the emacs command. While a man page is displayed we can use the following keys to navigate:
- Typing f will move us forward one page in the manual
- Typing b will move us backward one page in the manual
- Typing q will quit (exit the manual)
Exit the manual now.
