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.
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 will move us forward one page in the manual
- Typing will move us backward one page in the manual
- Typing will quit (exit the manual)
Exit the manual now.
