MANPATH(1) DragonFly General Commands Manual MANPATH(1)
manpath - display search path for manual pages
The manpath utility determines the user's manual search path from the
user's PATH, and local configuration files. This result is echoed to the
-L Output manual locales list instead of the manual path.
-d Print extra debugging information.
-q Suppresses warning messages.
The manpath utility constructs the manual path from two sources:
1. From each component of the user's PATH for the first of:
- If pathname ends with /bin: pathname/../share/man and
2. The configuration files listed in the FILES section for MANPATH
The information from these locations is then concatenated together.
If the -L flag is set, the manpath utility will search the configuration
files listed in the FILES section for MANLOCALE entries.
The following environment variables affect the execution of manpath:
MANLOCALES If set with the -L flag, causes the utility to display a
warning and the value, overriding any other configuration
found on the system.
MANPATH If set, causes the utility to display a warning and the
value, overriding any other configuration found on the
PATH Influences the manual path as described in the
System configuration file.
Local configuration files.
