    The following form allows you to view linux man pages.

    Command:

    whereis

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           whereis [-bmsu] [-BMS directory...  -f] filename...
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           whereis locates source/binary and manuals sections for specified files.
           The  supplied  names  are first stripped of leading pathname components
           and any (single) trailing extension of the form .ext, for example,  .c.
           Prefixes  of  s.   resulting  from  use of source code control are also
           dealt with.  whereis then attempts to locate the desired program  in  a
           list of standard Linux places.
    
    
    

    OPTIONS

           -b     Search only for binaries.
    
           -m     Search only for manual sections.
    
           -s     Search only for sources.
    
           -u     Search  for unusual entries.  A file is said to be unusual if it
                  does  not  have  one  entry  of  each  requested   type.    Thus
                  'whereis  -m  -u  *'  asks for those files in the current direc-
                  tory which have no documentation.
    
           -B     Change or otherwise limit the places where whereis searches  for
                  binaries.
    
           -M     Change  or otherwise limit the places where whereis searches for
                  manual sections.
    
           -S     Change or otherwise limit the places where whereis searches  for
                  sources.
    
           -f     Terminate  the last directory list and signals the start of file
                  names, and must be used when any of the -B, -M,  or  -S  options
                  are used.
    
    
    

    EXAMPLE

           Find  all  files  in /usr/bin which are not documented in /usr/man/man1
           with source in /usr/src:
    
                  example% cd /usr/bin
                  example% whereis -u -M /usr/man/man1 -S /usr/src -f *
    
    
    

    FILES

           /{bin,sbin,etc}
    
           /usr/{lib,bin,old,new,local,games,include,etc,src,man,sbin,
                               X386,TeX,g++-include}
    
           /usr/local/{X386,TeX,X11,include,lib,man,etc,bin,games,emacs}
    
    
                                      8 May 1994                        WHEREIS(1)
