What is a MAN File Type?

Unix man pages rarely use the ".man" extension. Rather, they use the extensions ".1" (.1 files) through ".8" for user manuals in one of eight sections: General user commands System calls C library functions Devices and network interfaces File formats Games Miscellaneous Linux-specific kernel routines Man page filenames contain the command (or topic name) followed by the section number. For example, a section 1 man page for the command "example_cmd" would have the filename "example_cmd.1." Man pages are sometimes compressed with .GZ compression and use the compound ".gz.1" extension (or ".gz.2" for the second section, and so forth).

The manual pages can be accessed by typing man 91; section 93; and page 91; page 93; where 91 is the manual section 93; and page 91 is the name of the manual d' use. If no section is provided, the duty man assumes section 1.

Since manual pages are stored in plain text format, they can be created and edited with n&apos, whatever editor.
