NAME

       puppet-man - Display Puppet manual pages.

SYNOPSIS

       puppet man action

DESCRIPTION

       This  subcommand  displays  manual  pages  for  all  Puppet  subcommands.  If the ronn gem
       (https://github.com/rtomayko/ronn/) is installed on your system, puppet man  will  display
       fully-formated  man  pages. If ronn is not available, puppet man will display the raw (but
       human-readable) source text in a pager.

OPTIONS

       Note that any configuration parameter that´s valid in the configuration  file  is  also  a
       valid  long  argument,  although  it may or may not be relevant to the present action. For
       example, server and run_mode are  valid  configuration  parameters,  so  you  can  specify
       --server <servername>, or --run_mode <runmode> as an argument.

       See           the           configuration          file          documentation          at
       http://docs.puppetlabs.com/references/stable/configuration.html  for  the  full  list   of
       acceptable parameters. A commented list of all configuration options can also be generated
       by running puppet with --genconfig.

       --render-as FORMAT
              The format in which to render output. The most common formats are json, s (string),
              yaml, and console, but other options such as dot are sometimes available.

       --verbose
              Whether to log verbosely.

       --debug
              Whether to log debug information.

              SYNOPSIS

              puppet man subcommand

              DESCRIPTION
