Man pages are concise, and expect you to understand the syntax. When I
started using Linux, people used to say things like man rpm. I used to

going to say man man!"
Today I typed "man man" in a terminal....just to make sure Rick *was* using
this humurous anecdote to illustrate how intricate and extensive the manual
pages might >seem< to a new user........
Somehow I find it reassuring that the manual has a manual, did I say
reassuring......what I ment to say was surreal.
