       catman - opret eller opdater de på forhånd formaterede manualsider


       catman [-d?V] [-M sti] [-C fil] [afsnit] ...


       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 display 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 hierarchy to determine
       which files need to be formatted.

       -M sti, --manpath=sti
              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.

              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.

              Hvis  $MANPATH  er  angivet,  dets  værdi  er  fortolket  som  den  kolonafgrænsede
              manualsides hierarkisøgesti at anvende.
