This question already has an answer here:
- Reading and searching long man pages 9 answers
I would like to know if there are easier ways to navigate to specific sections of manual pages such as Examples or Options
I currently resort to piping
man to regex find and retrieve statements.
For example to find the entry for the
-f option in the
grep manual I use this statement:
man grep | grep -A 2 -e '-f'
Is there a better way to use man? I've been able to find scant info on the
-S option but perhaps I'm going down the wrong rabbit hole.
