       manpath - format for filen /etc/manpath.config


       The  manpath  configuration  file  is  used  by the manual page utilities to assess users'
       manpaths at run time, to indicate which manual  page  hierarchies  (manpaths)  are  to  be
       treated  as  system  hierarchies and to assign them directories to be used for storing cat

       If the environment variable $MANPATH is already  set,  the  information  contained  within
       /etc/manpath.config will not override it.

       MANDATORY_MANPATH manualstielement
              Lines of this form indicate manpaths that every  automatically  generated  $MANPATH
              should contain.  This will typically include /usr/man.

       MANPATH_MAP stielement manualstielement
              Lines  of this form set up $PATH to $MANPATH mappings.  For each path_element found
              in the user's $PATH, manpath_element will be added to the $MANPATH.

       MANDB_MAP manpath_element [ catpath_element ]
              Lines of this form indicate which manpaths are to be treated  as  system  manpaths,
              and  optionally  where  their  cat  files  should  be  stored.   This field type is
              particularly important if  man  is  a  setuid  program,  as  (when  in  the  system
              configuration  file /etc/manpath.config rather than the per-user configuration file
              .manpath)  it indicates which manual page hierarchies to access as the setuid  user
              and which as the invoking user.

              Systemets  manualsidehierarkier  er  normalt  dem,  der  lagres  under  /usr  såsom
              /usr/man, /usr/local/man og /usr/X11R6/man.

              If cat pages from a particular manpath_element are not to be stored or  are  to  be
              stored in the traditional location, catpath_element may be omitted.

              Traditional  cat  placement  would  be impossible for read only mounted manual page
              hierarchies and because of this it is  possible  to  specify  any  valid  directory
              hierarchy  for  their storage.  To observe the Linux FSSTND the keyword `FSSTND can
              be used in place of an actual directory.

              Unfortunately, it is necessary to specify all  system  man  tree  paths,  including
              alternate operating system paths such as /usr/man/sun and any NLS locale paths such
              as /usr/man/de_DE.88591.

              As the information is parsed line by line in the order written, it is necessary for
              any  manpath  that  is  a  sub-hierarchy  of  another hierarchy to be listed first,
              otherwise an incorrect match will be made.  An example is that /usr/man/de_DE.88591
              must come before /usr/man.

       DEFINER nøgle værdi
              Lines  of  this  form define miscellaneous configuration variables; see the default
              configuration file for those variables used by the manual  pager  utilities.   They
              include  default paths to various programs (such as grep and tbl), and default sets
              of arguments to those programs.

       AFSNIT afsnit ...
              Lines of this form define the order in which manual sections  should  be  searched.
              If there are no SECTION directives in the configuration file, the default is:

                     SECTION 1 n l 8 3 0 2 5 4 9 6 7

              If multiple SECTION directives are given, their section lists will be concatenated.

              If  a particular extension is not in this list (say, 1mh) it will be displayed with
              the rest of the section it belongs to.  The effect of this is that you only need to
              explicitly  list extensions if you want to force a particular order.  Sections with
              extensions should usually be adjacent to their main section (e.g. "1 1mh 8 ...").

              AFSNIT accepteres som et alternativt navn for dette direktiv.

       MINCATWIDTH bredde
              Hvis terminalbredden er mindre end bredde  vil  katalogsider  ikke  blive  oprettet
              (hvis manglende) eller vist. Standarden er 80.

       MAXCATWIDTH bredde
              Hvis  terminalbredden  er  større  end  bredde vil katalogsider ikke blive oprettet
              (hvis manglende) eller vist. Standarden er 80.

       CATWIDTH bredde
              Hvis width er forskellig fra nul, så vil cat-sider altid blive  formateret  for  en
              terminal  med en fast bredde, uanset bredden for den terminal der faktisk anvendes.
              Dette bør normalt være indenfor intervallet angivet af MINCATWIDTH og MAXCATWIDTH.

              Dette flag forhindrer man(1) i at oprette katalogsider automatisk.
