BESKRIVELSE

       man  er systemets manuelle tekstviser. Hver side-parameter sendt til man er normalt navnet
       på et program, et redskab eller en funktion. manualsiden associeret  med  hvert  af  disse
       parametre  findes  så og vises. afsnit, hvis angivet, vil dirigere %man til kun at kigge i
       det afsnit af manualen. Standardhandlingen er at søge i alle de tilgængelige  afsnit,  der
       efterfølger den prædefinerede rækkefølge ("1 n l 8 3 2 3posix 3pm 3perl 3am 5 4 9 6 7" som
       standard, med mindre overskrevet af direktivet SECTION i /etc/manpath.config), og at  vise
       kun den første side fundet, selv hvis side findes i flere afsnit.

       Tabellen  nedenfor  viser  section-antallet  af  manualen  efterfulgt af typen af sider de
       indeholder.

       1   Kørbare programmer eller skalkommandoer
       2   Systemkald (funktioner stillet til rådighed af kernen)
       3   Bibliotekskald (funktioner i programbiblioteker)
       4   Specielle filer (normalt fundet i /dev)
       5   Filformater og konventioner f.eks. /etc/passwd
       6   Spil
       7   Diverse (inklusive makropakker og konventioner), f.eks. man(7), groff(7)
       8   Kommandoer til systemadministration (normalt kun for root)
       9   Kernerutiner [Ikkestandard]

       En manualside består af flere afsnit.

       Konventionelle  afsnitsnavne  inkluderer  NAVN,  SYNOPSIS,   KONFIGURATION,   BESKRIVELSE,
       TILVALG, AFSLUT-STATUS, RETURVÆRDI, FEJL, MILJØ, FILER, VERSIONER, KONFORMERER TIL, NOTER,
       FEJL, EKSEMPEL, FORFATTERE, og SE OGSÅ.

       De følgende konventioner gælder for afsnittet SYNOPSIS og kan bruges som en  vejledning  i
       andre afsnit.

       fed tekst      skriv præcis som vist.
       kursiv         erstat med passende argument.
       [-abc]         et eller alle argumenter inden i [ ] er valgfrie.
       -a|-b          tilvalg afgrænset af | kan ikke bruges sammen.
       argument ...   argument kan gentages.
       [udtryk] ...   hele udtrykket indenfor [ ] kan gentages.

       Præcis  optegning  kan  afhænge  af uddataenheden. For eksempel vil man normalt ikke kunne
       optegne kursiv når man befinder sig i en manual, og man vil normalt  bruge  understregning
       eller farvelagt tekst i stedet for.

       The  command  or  function  illustration  is  a  pattern  that  should  match all possible
       invocations.  In some cases it is advisable to illustrate several exclusive invocations as
       is shown in the SYNOPSIS section of this manual page.

EKSEMPLER

       man ls
           Vis manualsiden for punkt (program) ls.

       man man.7
           Vis manualsiden for makropakken man fra afsnit 7.

       man -a intro
           Vis,  i  rækkefølge,  alle de tilgængelige intro-manualsider indeholdt i denne manual.
           Det er muligt at afbryde mellem successive visninger eller udelade nogle af dem.

       man -t alias | lpr -Pps
           Format the manual page referenced by `alias', usually a shell manual  page,  into  the
           default troff or groff format and pipe it to the printer named ps.  The default output
           for groff is usually PostScript.  man --help should advise as to  which  processor  is
           bound to the -t option.

       man -l -Tdvi ./foo.1x.gz > ./foo.1x.dvi
           This  command will decompress and format the nroff source manual page ./foo.1x.gz into
           a device independent (dvi) file.  The redirection is necessary as the -T  flag  causes
           output  to  be  directed  to  stdout with no pager.  The output could be viewed with a
           program such as xdvi or further processed into PostScript  using  a  program  such  as
           dvips.

       man -k printf
           Søg  i  de  korte  beskrivelser  og navnene på manualsiderne for nøgleordet printf som
           regulært udtryk. Udskriv resultaterne. Svarer til apropos printf.

       man -f smail
           Slå manualsiderne refereret af smail op og vis den korte beskrivelse  for  det  fundne
           resultat. Svarer til whatis smail.

OVERBLIK

       Mange  tilvalg  er  tilgængelige for man for at give så meget fleksibilitet som muligt for
       slutbrugeren. Ændringer kan ske for søgestien, afsnitrækkefølge, uddataprocessor og  anden
       opførsel og operationer detaljeret nedenfor.

       Hvis angivet, bliver diverse miljøvariabler forhandlet for at bestemme operationen af man.
       Det  er  muligt  at  angive  variablen  »catch  all«   $MANOPT   til   enhver   streng   i
       kommandolinjeformat  med  den  undtagelse  at  eventuelle  mellemrum  brugt  som del af et
       tilvalgs argument skal have  undvigesekvens  (forudstillet  med  en  skråstreg).  man  vil
       fortolke  $MANOPT  før  fortolkning af sin egen kommandolinje. Disse tilvalg der kræver et
       argument vil blive overskrevet af de  samme  tilvalg  fundet  på  kommandolinjen.  For  at
       nulstille  hele  tilvalgssættet i $MANOPT, -D kan specificeres som opstartsindstilling for
       kommandolinjen. Dette vil tillade man at »glemme« tilvalgene specificeret i $MANOPT selvom
       de stadig må have været gyldige..

       The manual pager utilities packaged as man-db make extensive use of index database caches.
       These caches contain information such as where each  manual  page  can  be  found  on  the
       filesystem  and what its whatis (short one line description of the man page) contains, and
       allow man to run faster than if it had to search the filesystem  each  time  to  find  the
       appropriate  manual  page.   If  requested  using  the -u option, man will ensure that the
       caches remain consistent, which can obviate the need to manually run  software  to  update
       traditional whatis text databases.

       If  man  cannot  find  a  mandb  initiated  index  database  for  a particular manual page
       hierarchy, it will still search for the requested manual  pages,  although  file  globbing
       will  be necessary to search within that hierarchy.  If whatis or apropos fails to find an
       index it will try to extract information from a traditional whatis database instead.

       These utilities support compressed source nroff files having, by default,  the  extensions
       of  .Z,  .z  and  .gz.   It  is  possible to deal with any compression extension, but this
       information must be known at compile time.  Also, by default, any cat pages  produced  are
       compressed  using  gzip.   Each  `global'  manual page hierarchy such as /usr/share/man or
       /usr/X11R6/man may have any directory as its cat page hierarchy.   Traditionally  the  cat
       pages  are stored under the same hierarchy as the man pages, but for reasons such as those
       specified in the File Hierarchy Standard (FHS), it may be better to store them  elsewhere.
       For  details  on  how  to do this, please read manpath(5).  For details on why to do this,
       read the standard.

       Oversættelser er tilgængelige via denne pakke. Oversatte manualsider kan tilgås  (hvis  de
       er  tilgængelige  på  dit  system)  via  brug  af  sprog-funktioner. For at aktivere denne
       understøttelse, er det nødvendigt at angive  enten  $LC_MESSAGES,  $LANG  eller  en  anden
       systemafhængig   miljøvariabel   for   dit   sprog,   normalt  specificeret  i  det  POSIX
       1003.1-baserede format:

       <language>[_<territory>[.<tegnsæt>[,<version>]]]

       Hvis den ønskede side er tilgængelig i  dit  sprog,  vil  den  blive  vist  i  stedet  for
       standardsiden (normalt amerikansk-engelsk).

       Support  for  international message catalogues is also featured in this package and can be
       activated in the same way, again if available.  If you find  that  the  manual  pages  and
       message  catalogues  supplied  with this package are not available in your native language
       and you would like to supply them, please contact the maintainer who will be  coordinating
       such activity.

       For information om andre funktioner og udvidelser tilgængelige med denne manualtekstviser,

STANDARDER

       man will search for the desired manual pages within the index database caches. If  the  -u
       option is given, a cache consistency check is performed to ensure the databases accurately
       reflect the filesystem.  If this option is always given, it is not generally necessary  to
       run  mandb  after  the  caches  are  initially  created,  unless  a cache becomes corrupt.
       However, the cache consistency check can  be  slow  on  systems  with  many  manual  pages
       installed,  so  it  is not performed by default, and system administrators may wish to run
       mandb every week or so to keep the database caches fresh.  To forestall problems caused by
       outdated  caches,  man will fall back to file globbing if a cache lookup fails, just as it
       would if no cache was present.

       Once a manual page has been located, a check is  performed  to  find  out  if  a  relative
       preformatted  `cat'  file already exists and is newer than the nroff file.  If it does and
       is, this preformatted file is (usually) decompressed and then  displayed,  via  use  of  a
       pager.   The  pager  can  be  specified  in  a number of ways, or else will fall back to a
       default is used (see option -P for details).  If no cat is found  or  is  older  than  the
       nroff file, the nroff is filtered through various programs and is shown immediately.

       If  a  cat  file  can  be  produced  (a  relative cat directory exists and has appropriate
       permissions), man will compress and store the cat file in the background.

       Filtrene  tydes  vis  et  antal  metoder.  Først  tydes  kommandolinjetilvalget  -p  eller
       miljøvariablen $MANROFFSEQ. Hvis -p ikke blev brugt og miljøvariablen ikke var angivet, så
       fortolkes opstartslinjen for nroff-filen for en forbrænderstrenge.  For  at  indeholde  en
       gyldig forbrænderstreng, så skal den første linje ligne

       '\" <string>

       Hvor streng kan være enhver kombination af bogstaver beskrevet af tilvalget -p nedenfor.

       Hvis ingen af de ovenstående metoder giver filterinformation, så bruges et standardsæt.

       A  formatting  pipeline  is  formed  from  the filters and the primary formatter (nroff or
       [tg]roff with -t)  and executed.  Alternatively, if an executable program  mandb_nfmt  (or
       mandb_tfmt  with -t)  exists in the man tree root, it is executed instead.  It gets passed
       the manual source file, the preprocessor string, and optionally the device specified  with
       -T or -E as arguments.

TILVALG

       Tilvalg uden argumenter som dublikeres enten på kommandolinjen, i $MANOPT, eller begge, er
       ikke skadelige. For tilvalg som kræver et argument, vil hver dublikering tilsidesætte  den
       tidligere argumentværdi.

   Generelle tilvalg
       -C fil, --config-file=fil
              Brug denne brugerkonfigurationsfil frem for standarden ~/.manpath.

       -d, --debug
              Vis fejlsøgningsinformation.

       -D, --default
              Dette  tilvalg udstedes normalt som det første tilvalg og nulstiller man's opførsel
              til standarden. Dets brug er at nulstille disse tilvalg, som  måske  er  angivet  i
              $MANOPT. Ethvert tilvalg som følger -D vil have deres normale effekt.

       --warnings[=advarsler]
              Aktiver  advarsler  fra  groff.  Dette  kan  gøres for at udføre sanitetskontrol på
              kildetekst for manualsider. advarsler er en kommaadskilt liste med  advarselsnavne;
              hvis  den ikke er angivet, er standarden »mac«. Se “Warnings” node i info groff for
              en liste over tilgængelige advarselsnavne.

   Hovedtilstande for operation
       -f, --whatis
              Svarer til whatis. Vis en kort beskrivelse fra manualsiden,  hvis  tilgængelig.  Se
              whatis(1) for detaljer.

       -k, --apropos
              Svarer  til apropos. Søg i de korte manualsidebeskrivelser for nøgleord og vis alle
              match. Se apropos(1) for detaljer.

       -K, --global-apropos
              Search for text in all manual pages.  This is a brute-force search, and  is  likely
              to take some time; if you can, you should specify a section to reduce the number of
              pages that need to be searched.  Search terms may be simple strings (the  default),
              or regular expressions if the --regex option is used.

              Note that this searches the sources of the manual pages, not the rendered text, and
              so may include false positives  due  to  things  like  comments  in  source  files.
              Searching the rendered text would be much slower.

       -l, --local-file
              Activate  `local' mode.  Format and display local manual files instead of searching
              through the  system's  manual  collection.   Each  manual  page  argument  will  be
              interpreted  as  an  nroff  source  file  in  the  correct  format.  No cat file is
              produced.  If '-' is listed as one of the  arguments,  input  will  be  taken  from
              stdin.   When  this  option  is  not used, and man fails to find the page required,
              before displaying the error message, it attempts to  act  as  if  this  option  was
              supplied, using the name as a filename and looking for an exact match.

       -w, --where, --path, --location
              Vis ikke reelt manualsiden, men vis placeringerne for nroff-kildefilerne, som ville
              blive formateret.

       -W, --where-cat, --location-cat
              Vis ikke reelt manualsiderne, men vis dog  placeringerne  for  katalogfilerne,  som
              ville  være  blevet  vist.  Hvis -w og -W begge er angivet, så vis begge adskilt af
              mellemrum.

       -c, --catman
              Dette tilvalg er ikke for generel brug og bør kun bruges af programmet catman.

       -R kodning, --recode=kodning
              Instead of formatting the manual page in the usual way, output its source converted
              to  the  specified  encoding.  If you already know the encoding of the source file,
              you can also use manconv(1)  directly.  However, this option allows you to  convert
              several  manual  pages  to a single encoding without having to explicitly state the
              encoding of each, provided that they were already installed in a structure  similar
              to a manual page hierarchy.

   Finde manualsider
       -L sprog, --locale=sprog
              man   vil   normalt  bestemme  dit  lokale  sprog  med  et  kald  til  C-funktionen
              setlocale(3),   som   undersøger   diverse   miljøvariabler,   muligvis   inklusive
              $LC_MESSAGES  og  $LANG.  For midlertidigt at overskrive den afslørede værdi bruges
              dette tilvalg til at supplere en sprog-streng direkte til man. Bemærk at  det  ikke
              vil træde i kraft før søgningen efter sider rent faktisk begynder. Resultatet såsom
              hjælpebeskeden vil altid blive vist i det oprindeligt bestemte sprog.

       -m system[,...], --systems=system[,...]
              Hvis dette system har adgang til andre operativsystemers  manualsider,  så  kan  de
              tilgås   med   dette   tilvalg.  For  at  søge  efter  en  manualside  fra  NytOS's
              manualsidesamling bruges tilvalget -m NytOS.

              Det angivet system kan være en kombination af kommaadskilt operativsystemnavne. For
              at   inkludere  en  søgning  i  manualsiderne  for  udgangspunktets  operativsystem
              inkluderes systemnavnet  man  i  argumentstrengen.  Dette  tilvalg  vil  overskrive
              miljøvariablen $SYSTEM.

       -M sti, --manpath=sti
              Angiv  en  alternativ manualsti. Som standard bruger man manpath-afledt kode til at
              bestemme søgestien. Dette tilvalg overskriver miljøvariablen $MANPATH  og  medfører
              at tilvalget -m ignoreres.

              A  path  specified  as  a  manpath  must  be  the  root  of a manual page hierarchy
              structured into sections as described in the man-db manual (under "The manual  page
              system").  To view manual pages outside such hierarchies, see the -l option.

       -S liste, -s liste, --sections=liste
              List  is  a  colon-  or comma-separated list of `order specific' manual sections to
              search.  This option overrides the $MANSECT environment variable.  (The -s spelling
              is for compatibility with System V.)

       -e sub-extension, --extension=sub-extension
              Some  systems  incorporate  large  packages  of  manual  pages,  such as those that
              accompany the Tcl package, into the main manual page hierarchy.  To get around  the
              problem  of  having  two  manual  pages with the same name such as exit(3), the Tcl
              pages were usually all assigned to section l.  As this is unfortunate,  it  is  now
              possible  to  put  the  pages  in  the  correct  section,  and to assign a specific
              `extension' to them, in this case, exit(3tcl).  Under normal  operation,  man  will
              display  exit(3)   in preference to exit(3tcl).  To negotiate this situation and to
              avoid having to know which section the page you  require  resides  in,  it  is  now
              possible  to give man a sub-extension string indicating which package the page must
              belong to.  Using the above example,  supplying  the  option  -e tcl  to  man  will
              restrict the search to pages having an extension of *tcl.

       -i, --ignore-case
              Ignore case when searching for manual pages.  This is the default.

       -I, --match-case
              Search for manual pages case-sensitively.

       --regex
              Show  all  pages with any part of either their names or their descriptions matching
              each page argument as a regular expression, as with  apropos(1).   Since  there  is
              usually  no  reasonable  way  to  pick  a  "best" page when searching for a regular
              expression, this option implies -a.

       --wildcard
              Show all pages with any part of either their names or their  descriptions  matching
              each  page  argument  using  shell-style wildcards, as with apropos(1)  --wildcard.
              The page argument must match the entire name  or  description,  or  match  on  word
              boundaries  in the description.  Since there is usually no reasonable way to pick a
              "best" page when searching for a wildcard, this option implies -a.

       --names-only
              Hvis enten tilvalget --regex eller --wildcard bruges,  match  kun  sidenavne,  ikke
              sidebeskrivelser, som med whatis(1). Ellers, ingen effekt.

       -a, --all
              Som  standard  vil  man  afslutte  efter  visning  af den mest egnet manualside den
              finder. Brug af dette tilvalg tvinger man til at vise alle manualsiderne med  navne
              som matcher søgekriteriet.

       -u, --update
              Dette  tilvalg  får  man  til  at udføre en »inode level«-konsistenskontrol på dets
              databasemellemlager for at sikre at de er en præcis repræsentation af  filsystemet.
              Det vil kun have en nyttig effekt hvis man er installeret med setuid-bitsættet.

       --no-subpages
              By  default,  man  will  try  to  interpret pairs of manual page names given on the
              command line as equivalent to a single manual page name containing a hyphen  or  an
              underscore.   This  supports the common pattern of programs that implement a number
              of subcommands, allowing them to provide manual pages for each that can be accessed
              using  similar  syntax  as would be used to invoke the subcommands themselves.  For
              example:

                $ man -aw git diff

                /usr/share/man/man1/diff.1.gz

   Kontrol af formateret resultat
       -P tekstviser, --pager=tekstviser
              Specify which output pager to use.  By default, man uses pager, falling back to cat
              if  pager  is  not found or is not executable.  This option overrides the $MANPAGER
              environment variable, which in turn overrides the $PAGER environment variable.   It
              is not used in conjunction with -f or -k.

              The  value  may  be  a simple command name or a command with arguments, and may use
              shell quoting (backslashes, single quotes, or double quotes).  It may not use pipes
              to  connect  multiple  commands;  if you need that, use a wrapper script, which may
              take the file to display either as an argument or on standard input.

       -r prompt, --prompt=prompt
              Hvis en nylig version af less bruges som tekstsøger, så vil man forsøge  at  angive
              den  på  sin prompt og vælge nogle fornuftige tilvalg. Standardprompten ser således
              ud

               Manualside navn(sec) line x

              hvor navn benvæner manualsidenavnet, sektion benævner  sektionen  den  blev  fundet
              under  og  x  det  nuværende  linjenummer.  Dette opnås ved at bruge miljøvariablen
              $LESS.

              Supplying -r with a string will override this default.  The string may contain  the
              text  $MAN_PN which will be expanded to the name of the current manual page and its
              section name surrounded by `(' and `)'.  The string used  to  produce  the  default
              could be expressed as

              \ Manual\ page\ \$MAN_PN\ ?ltline\ %lt?L/%L.:
              byte\ %bB?s/%s..?\ (END):?pB\ %pB\\%..
              (tryk h for hjælp eller q for afslut)

              It  is  broken  into  three  lines  here for the sake of readability only.  For its
              meaning see the less(1)  manual page.  The prompt string is first evaluated by  the
              shell.   All  double  quotes,  back-quotes  and  backslashes  in the prompt must be
              escaped by a preceding backslash.  The prompt string may end in an escaped $  which
              may be followed by further options for less.  By default man sets the -ix8 options.

              The  $MANLESS  environment  variable  described  below may be used to set a default
              prompt string if none is supplied on the command line.

       -7, --ascii
              When viewing a pure ascii(7)  manual page on a 7 bit terminal or terminal emulator,
              some  characters  may  not  display  correctly  when  using  the  latin1(7)  device
              description with GNU nroff.  This option allows  pure  ascii  manual  pages  to  be
              displayed  in ascii with the latin1 device.  It will not translate any latin1 text.
              The following table shows the translations performed: some parts of it may only  be
              displayed properly when using GNU nroff's latin1(7)  device.

              Beskrivelse           Oktal   latin1   ascii
              ─────────────────────────────────────────────
              continuation hyphen    255      ‐        -
              bullet (middle dot)    267      ·        o
              acute accent           264      ´        '
              multiplication sign    327      ×        x

              If  the  latin1  column  displays correctly, your terminal may be set up for latin1
              characters and this option is not necessary.  If the latin1 and ascii  columns  are
              identical,  you  are reading this page using this option or man did not format this
              page using the latin1 device description.  If  the  latin1  column  is  missing  or
              corrupt, you may need to view manual pages with this option.

              This  option is ignored when using options -t, -H, -T, or -Z and may be useless for
              nroff other than GNU's.

       -E kodning, --encoding=kodning
              Generate output for a character encoding other  than  the  default.   For  backward
              compatibility,  encoding  may  be an nroff device such as ascii, latin1, or utf8 as
              well as a true character encoding such as UTF-8.

       --no-hyphenation, --nh
              Normally, nroff will automatically hyphenate text at line breaks even in words that
              do  not  contain  hyphens,  if  it is necessary to do so to lay out words on a line
              without excessive spacing.  This option disables automatic  hyphenation,  so  words
              will only be hyphenated if they already contain hyphens.

              If  you are writing a manual page and simply want to prevent nroff from hyphenating
              a word at an inappropriate point, do not use this option,  but  consult  the  nroff
              documentation  instead;  for  instance,  you can put "\%" inside a word to indicate
              that it may be hyphenated at that point, or put "\%" at the  start  of  a  word  to
              prevent it from being hyphenated.

       --no-justification, --nj
              Normally,  nroff  will  automatically  justify  text  to both margins.  This option
              disables full justification, leaving justified only to the left  margin,  sometimes
              called "ragged-right" text.

              If  you  are writing a manual page and simply want to prevent nroff from justifying
              certain paragraphs, do not use this option, but  consult  the  nroff  documentation
              instead;  for  instance, you can use the ".na", ".nf", ".fi", and ".ad" requests to
              temporarily disable adjusting and filling.

       -p streng, --preprocessor=streng
              Specify the sequence of preprocessors to run before nroff or troff/groff.  Not  all
              installations will have a full set of preprocessors.  Some of the preprocessors and
              the letters used to designate them are: eqn (e), grap (g), pic (p), tbl (t), vgrind
              (v),  refer  (r).   This  option  overrides  the  $MANROFFSEQ environment variable.
              zsoelim is always run as the very first preprocessor.

       -t, --troff
              Brug groff -mandoc til at formatere manualsiden til standardud. Tilvalget  er  ikke
              krævet sammen med -H, -T eller -Z.

       -T[enhed], --troff-device[=enhed]
              Denne  indstilling  bruges til at ændre groff-resultater (eller muligvis troff'er),
              så de er egnet for en enhed  udover  standarden.  -t  er  underforstået.  Eksempler
              (indeholdt med Groff-1.17) inkluderer dvi, latin1, ps, utf8, X75 og X100.

       -H[browser], --html[=browser]
              This  option  will cause groff to produce HTML output, and will display that output
              in a web browser.  The choice of browser is  determined  by  the  optional  browser
              argument  if  one  is  provided,  by  the  $BROWSER  environment  variable, or by a
              compile-time default if that is unset (usually lynx).  This option implies -t,  and
              will only work with GNU troff.

       -X[dpi], --gxditview[=dpi]
              This  option displays the output of groff in a graphical window using the gxditview
              program.  The dpi (dots per inch) may be 75, 75-12, 100, or 100-12,  defaulting  to
              75;  the  -12  variants  use a 12-point base font.  This option implies -T with the
              X75, X75-12, X100, or X100-12 device respectively.

       -Z, --ditroff
              groff vil køre troff og så bruge en passende  efterbrænder  til  at  fremstille  et
              resultat  egnet  for  den  valgte  enhed. Hvis groff -mandoc er groff, så vil dette
              tilvalg sendes til groff og vil  undertrykke  brugen  af  en  efterbrænder.  -t  er
              underforstået.

MILJØ

       MANPATH
              If $MANPATH is set, its value is used as the path to search for manual pages.

       MANROFFOPT
              The  contents  of  $MANROFFOPT are added to the command line every time man invokes
              the formatter (nroff, troff, or groff).

       MANROFFSEQ
              If $MANROFFSEQ is set, its value is used to determine the set of  preprocessors  to
              pass each manual page through.  The default preprocessor list is system dependent.

       MANSECT
              If  $MANSECT is set, its value is a colon-delimited list of sections and it is used
              to determine which manual sections to search and in what order.  The default is  "1
              n  l  8  3  2  3posix  3pm  3perl  3am 5 4 9 6 7", unless overridden by the SECTION
              directive in /etc/manpath.config.

       MANPAGER, PAGER
              If $MANPAGER or $PAGER is set ($MANPAGER is used in preference), its value is  used
              as  the  name of the program used to display the manual page.  By default, pager is
              used, falling back to cat if pager is not found or is not executable.

              The value may be a simple command name or a command with  arguments,  and  may  use
              shell quoting (backslashes, single quotes, or double quotes).  It may not use pipes
              to connect multiple commands; if you need that, use a  wrapper  script,  which  may
              take the file to display either as an argument or on standard input.

       MANLESS
              If  $MANLESS  is  set,  its value will be used as the default prompt string for the
              less pager, as if it had been passed using the -r option (so any occurrences of the
              text  $MAN_PN  will  be expanded in the same way).  For example, if you want to set
              the  prompt  string  unconditionally  to  “my  prompt  string”,  set  $MANLESS   to
              ‘-Psmy prompt string’.  Using the -r option overrides this environment variable.

       BROWSER
              If  $BROWSER is set, its value is a colon-delimited list of commands, each of which
              in turn is used to try to start a web browser for man --html.  In each command,  %s
              is  replaced by a filename containing the HTML output from groff, %% is replaced by
              a single percent sign (%), and %c is replaced by a colon (:).

       SYSTEM Hvis $SYSTEM er angivet, vil det have den samme effekt, som  hvis  den  var  blevet
              angivet som argument for tilvalget -m.

       MANOPT If $MANOPT is set, it will be parsed prior to man's command line and is expected to
              be in a similar format.  As all of the other man specific environment variables can
              be expressed as command line options, and are thus candidates for being included in
              $MANOPT it is expected that they will  become  obsolete.   N.B.   All  spaces  that
              should be interpreted as part of an option's argument must be escaped.

       MANWIDTH
              If  $MANWIDTH  is  set, its value is used as the line length for which manual pages
              should be formatted.  If it is not set, manual pages will be formatted with a  line
              length  appropriate  to  the  current  terminal  (using  the  value of $COLUMNS, an
              ioctl(2)  if available, or falling back to 80 characters if neither is  available).
              Cat  pages will only be saved when the default formatting can be used, that is when
              the terminal line length is between 66 and 80 characters.

       MAN_KEEP_FORMATTING
              Normally, when output is not being directed to a terminal (such as to a file  or  a
              pipe),  formatting  characters  are  discarded to make it easier to read the result
              without special tools.  However, if $MAN_KEEP_FORMATTING is set  to  any  non-empty
              value,  these  formatting characters are retained.  This may be useful for wrappers
              around man that can interpret formatting characters.

       MAN_KEEP_STDERR
              Normally, when output is being directed to a terminal (usually  to  a  pager),  any
              error output from the command used to produce formatted versions of manual pages is
              discarded to avoid interfering with the pager's display.  Programs  such  as  groff
              often  produce relatively minor error messages about typographical problems such as
              poor alignment, which are unsightly and generally confusing  when  displayed  along
              with  the  manual  page.   However,  some  users  want  to  see them anyway, so, if
              $MAN_KEEP_STDERR is set to any non-empty value, error output will be  displayed  as
              usual.

       LANG, LC_MESSAGES
              Afhængig  af  system  og  implementering,  vil  enten  en  af  eller begge $LANG og
              $LC_MESSAGES blive spurgt for den  aktuelle  beskeds  sprog.   man  vil  vise  dets
              beskeder  i  det  sprog  (hvis  tilgængeligt).  Se  setlocale(3) for mere udførlige
              detaljer.
