 searchable man pages
Author: elliot 
Date:   29-03-00 03:54

the man pages are searchable because they are transparently passed through your pager, defaulted to /usr/bin/more. the default .cshrc, 'setenv PAGER more' sets this. interactive commands for more are based on vi(1). for more commands [pun intended] , see the man page for more(1).
have fun.
