       manpath - determine search path for manual pages


       manpath [-qgdchV] [-m system[,...]] [-C file]


       If $MANPATH is set, manpath will simply display its contents and issue a warning.  If not,
       manpath will determine a suitable manual  page  hierarchy  search  path  and  display  the

       The   colon-delimited  path  is  determined  using  information  gained  from  the  man-db
       configuration file - (/etc/manpath.config)  and the user's environment.


       -q, --quiet
              Do not issue warnings.

       -d, --debug
              Foutinformatie tonen.

       -c, --catpath
              Produce a catpath as opposed to a manpath.  Once the manpath  is  determined,  each
              path element is converted to its relative catpath.

       -g, --global
              Produce  a  manpath  consisting  of  all  paths named as `global' within the man-db
              configuration file.

       -m systeem[,...], --systems=systeem[,...]
              If this system has access to other  operating  system's  manual  hierarchies,  this
              option  can  be  used to include them in the output of manpath.  To include NewOS's
              manual page hierarchies use the option -m NewOS.

              The system specified can be a  combination  of  comma  delimited  operating  system
              names.   To  include  the  native  operating  system's manual page hierarchies, the
              system name man must be included in the argument string.  This option will override
              the $SYSTEM environment variable.

              If $MANPATH is set, manpath displays its value rather than determining  it  on  the
              fly.   If  $MANPATH  is  prefixed  by  a  colon,  then the value of the variable is
              appended to the list determined from the content of the  configuration  files.   If
              the  colon  comes at the end of the value in the variable, then the determined list
              is appended to the content of the variable.  If the value of the variable  contains
              a  double  colon  (::),  then  the determined list is inserted in the middle of the
              value, between the two colons.

       SYSTEM Wanneer $SYSTEM is opgegeven, heeft dit hetzelfde  effect  als  het  opgegeven  van
              optie -m als argument.
