Let’s say you’re looking for more information about a command like
You can use
man ansible to print the
man page for the
ansible command. But
maybe you want to see a list of
man pages that mention the string “ansible”.
You can simply write:
> man -k ansible ansible(1) - run a task on a target host(s) ansible-doc(1) - show documentation on Ansible modules ansible-galaxy(1) - manage roles using galaxy.ansible.com ansible-playbook(1) - run an ansible playbook ansible-pull(1) - pull playbooks from VCS server and run them using this machine as the target ansible-vault(1) - manage encrypted ansible vars files (YAML)
The number next to each
man entry represents its section number. Thanks
helping me learn this useful tip.
