I've read couple of posts (man -k returns no results) and first run
mandb (nothing was updated), then
mandb -c (
7438 manual pages were added.), still
$ apropos compilation
compilation: nothing appropriate.
$ MANWIDTH=120 man objdump | grep -B 5 compilation DESCRIPTION objdump displays information about one or more object files. The options control what particular information to display. This information is mostly useful to programmers who are working on the compilation tools, as
compilation is within
DESCRIPTION part of man page.
$ man apropos Each manual page has a short description available within it. apropos searches the descriptions for instances of keyword.
apropos find it?
