I'm making a text editor, and I'm making some man pages for it. What I'd like to know is how to use man to read a file.

Also, I'm pretty sure that to make bold text in a man page, making INTRODUCTION bold would be done like this: IINNTTRROODDUUCCTTIIOONN?

    See man 7 groff for how to embolden text...
