Where to Go For More Information

UNIX manual pages, commonly known as manpages, are an on-line copy of the documentation from the UNIX Reference Manual and other documents. They give out information on UNIX commands and most other software (including all Athena and SIPB programs), UNIX system calls, standard library functions and file formats. Manpages are an extremely useful source of information. To access a manpage about a command, type man commandname. If you are looking for a command that does something specific you need, use the apropos command.
