AboutI've always called unix/linux man pages "user hostile". I find them very difficult to use, because as far as I can tell, they are written by people who know what they are doing and know what the functions do.
Not very easy for the beginner to use or the occasional user to figure out what they are doing.
The other big problem is there are no examples in user man pages. Or no useful examples. Which I find is one of the best way's to learn.
I'd like to change this. Right now this wiki is an experiment to see if there is other demand beyond me, for unix man pages that are useful. I'll start adding more and more commands if I have time, and if traffic picks up on these pages, I'll produce more pages and take the idea futher.
The NameThe name is a play on words. man ls is a unix command to get a directory listings, and one of the first and most common commands you'll need when on the command line.
