About us | Unix Manual Pages | :man▋
The UNIX Programmer's Manual was first published on November 3, 1971. The first actual man pages were written by Dennis Ritchie and Ken Thompson at the insistence of Doug McIlroy in 1971. Now, after 37 years there is a vast amount of man files. Despite it's age and command-line interface, it's still popular for its simplicity and availability even in remote-controlled host.
We tried to make it available in more usual modern format, readable in web-browsers. We'll try hard to make this site to contain as more manuals as possible, and we'll appreciate any feedback on it, especially requests for man pages, that you haven't find there.
We'll be happy if you'll send us something to firstname.lastname@example.org
