Manual Pages

Void packages come with manual pages and the default installation includes the mandoc manpage toolset.

The man(1) command can be used to show manual pages.

$ man 1 chroot

The mandoc toolset contains apropos(1), which can be used to search for manual pages. apropos uses a database that can be updated and generated with the makewhatis(8) command.

# makewhatis -a
$ apropos chroot
