Unix – read “man” pages from info

by

In order to read “man” pages from info, you can use:

info man_page
e.g., info read

If you need a specific section (e.g., man 2 read), you can use:

info “man_page(page_no)”
e.g., info “read(2)”

If you are inside info and you want to read a “man” page, you can use:

M-x man RET man_page or
M-x man RET “man_page(page_no)”
