SYNTAX

manaim page-title

manaim -k keyword

manaim -F filename

DESCRIPTION

This command uses the standard Unix man command. The path for searching man pages is the ~release/man directory.

The basic function of manaim is to provide on-line displays of AIM reference pages. The manaim command formats (using Nroff) and displays one or more specified reference/manual pages.

For keyword search the -k option will display one line summary of each command where the string of keyword is matched by identical strings in the aim/release/man/whatis file.

For filename search the -F option attempts to locate manual pages related to any of the given filenames, and then prints one-line summaries containing the resulting names. This option also uses the whatis database.

EXTENDED OPTION DESCRIPTION

Manaim command provides help information about the AIM tools and other options. There is another command called listdoc file-name, which displays long documents on-line (e.g. bibliography), which are not necessarily help pages.
