"One area that Linux excels in is free documentation. Some
documentation formats have already been written about on Linux.com
such as: HOW-TOs, Guides and FAQ's. In this introductory article we
will delve into the world of Man Pages."
"Man Pages (short for manual pages) are a standard form of
documentation found on most distributions of Linux and Unix. They
are broken up into 9 sections as follows:
1. Executable Programs or shell commands
2. System Calls
3. Library Calls
4. Special Files
5. File Formats and Conventions
7. Macro Packages
8. System Administration
9. Kernel Routines"
