I'm trying to use
apropos so that I would look for all man pages starting with
apropos ^system apropos "^system"
but these seem to return lines that don't start with system, but where system occurs somewhere in the line.
As per comment below, the above actually works but it matches against several compoments:
- cmd name
- cmd description - cmd one liner.
So when I searched for system, I got a line like this:
tapset::task_time (3stap) - systemtap task_time tapset
Which makes sense because the description starts with system.
One way to get really just the lines starting with "system" would be:
apropos "" | grep "^system"
