    Command:

    catman

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           catman [-dhV] [-M path] [-C file] [section] ...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           catman  is  used  to  create  an up to date set of pre-formatted manual
           pages known as cat pages.  Cat pages are generally much faster to  dis-
           play  than  the original manual pages, but require extra storage space.
           The decision to support cat pages is that of the  local  administrator,
           who must provide suitable directories to contain them.
    
           The  options  available  to  catman are the manual page hierarchies and
           sections to pre-format.  The default hierarchies are those specified as
           system  hierarchies  in  the man-db configuration file, and the default
           sections are either the colon-delimited  contents  of  the  environment
           variable  $MANSECT or the standard set compiled into man if $MANSECT is
           undefined.  Supplying catman with a set of whitespace-delimited section
           names will override both of the above.
    
           catman makes use of the index database cache associated with each hier-
           archy to determine which files need to be formatted.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -d, --debug
                  Print debugging information.
    
           -M path, --manpath=path
                  Specify  an  alternate  colon-delimited  manual  page  hierarchy
                  search  path.  By default, this is all paths indicated as system
                  hierarchies in the man-db configuration file.
    
           -C file, --config-file=file
                  Use this user configuration file  rather  than  the  default  of
                  ~/.manpath.
    
           -h, --help
                  Print a help message and exit.
    
           -V, --version
                  Display version information.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

           MANSECT
                  If  $MANSECT is set, its value is a colon-delimited list of sec-
                  tions and it is used  to  determine  which  manual  sections  to
                  search and in what order.
    
           MANPATH
                  If $MANPATH is set, its value is interpreted as the colon-delim-
                  ited manual page hierarchy search path to use.
    
    
    

    FILES
