 +====== Manual Pages ======
 +
 +Documentation comes installed with MINIX. Much helpful information is in MINIX'​s manual pages (or "​manpages"​),​ which can be read with //man// or [[http://​www.minix3.org/​manpages/​|online]].
 +
 +For example, to learn about the Ash shell, type:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +man sh
 +</​code>​
 +
 +Sometimes you'll see manual pages mentioned like this: //​shutdown(8)//​. This refers to the //​shutdown//​ page in section 8 of the manual.
 +
 +You can read it like this:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +man 8 shutdown
 +</​code>​
 +
 +To find installed manual pages, please look in ///​usr/​man//​ and ///​usr/​pkg/​man//​.
 +
 +Finally, you can read the manual page about //man// itself:
 +
 +<​code>​
 +man man
 +</​code>​
