MAN.CONFIG(5)                                                    MAN.CONFIG(5)



NAME
       man.config - configuration data for man

DESCRIPTION
       This  file  is  read by man(1) and contains (a) information on how to construct the
       search path for man, (b) full path names for various programs like nroff, eqn,  tbl
       etc.  used  by man, and (c) a list with uncompressors for files with a given exten-
       sion.  An alternative version of this file can be specified with

              man -C private_man.config ...

       The command names may be provided with options.  Useful options  to  nroff  can  be
       found in grotty(1).  For example, instead of the default line

              NROFF /usr/bin/groff -mandoc -Tlatin1

       one may write

              NROFF /usr/bin/groff -mandoc -Tlatin1 -P-u -P-b

       in order to suppress underlining and overstriking.
