    The following form allows you to view linux man pages.

    Command:

    ul

    
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

         Ul reads the named files (or standard input if none are given) and trans-
         lates occurrences of underscores to the sequence which indicates under-
         lining for the terminal in use, as specified by the environment variable
         TERM.  The terminfo database is read to determine the appropriate
         sequences for underlining.  If the terminal is incapable of underlining,
         but is capable of a standout mode then that is used instead.  If the ter-
         minal can overstrike, or handles underlining automatically, ul degener-
         ates to cat(1).  If the terminal cannot underline, underlining is
         ignored.
    
         The following options are available:
    
         -i      Underlining is indicated by a separate line containing appropri-
                 ate dashes '-'; this is useful when you want to look at the
                 underlining which is present in an nroff output stream on a crt-
                 terminal.
    
         -t terminal
                 Overrides the terminal type specified in the environment with
                 terminal.
    
    
    

    ENVIRONMENT

         The following environment variable is used:
    
         TERM  The TERM variable is used to relate a tty device with its device
               capability description (see terminfo(5)).  TERM is set at login
               time, either by the default terminal type specified in /etc/ttys or
               as set during the login process by the user in their login file
               (see setenv(1)).

    BUGS

         Nroff usually outputs a series of backspaces and underlines intermixed
         with the text to indicate underlining.  No attempt is made to optimize
         the backward motion.
