SYNOPSIS

manck [-d] [-h-|-? ] [-help] [-bin path] [-exclude_files file] [-exclude_pages file] [-u=section] [-i-|-include includepath] [-xref] [-files] [-M manpath] [manpages ...]

DESCRIPTION

Manck check manual pages. Currently supported section FILES, NAME, SEE ALSO, and SYNOPSIS. Manck checks all man pages in the directory /usr/share/man if no manpages defined. See option -M

The options are as follows:

-d -|-debug
  Be more verbose about what will be done. For a single -d option, print more errors and warnings. If the option -d has been specified at least twice, print verbose errors and warnings. One -d is recommend for a thorough review.

-h -|-?
-help
  Give a help on the command usage and exit.

-bin path
  Look for binaries in path without a corresponding manpage. Colons in path are allowed. Default /bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin

-exclude_files file
  file contains a list of missing files that are ‘‘ok’’ to be missing in the FILES section.

-exclude_pages file
  file contains a list of missing manpages that are ‘‘ok’’ to be missing.

-files
  Scan entire man page for file names that have been specified with the ‘‘.Pa’’ or ‘‘.It Pa’’ macros. This option is independent from section FILES, so it is possible that manck may report errors twice.

-i -|-include includepath
  Path where include files located. Colons in includepath are allowed. Default /usr/include:/usr/local/include:/usr/X11/include.

-u=section
  Don’t check section section.

-xref Scan entire man page for references to other man pages that have been referenced with the ‘‘.Xr’’ or ‘‘.Fn’’ macros. This option is independent from the SEE ALSO section, so it is possible that manck may report errors twice.

-M manpath
  Use manpath as the directory where manpages are located. Colons in manpath are allowed. Default /usr/share/man

EXAMPLES

    $ manck -bin

Test if all binaries in /bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin have their own manpages

    $ manck /usr/share/man/man1/z*

Check all manpages with leading ’z’ in /usr/share/man/man1.

    $ manck

Recursively check all manpages in /usr/share/man.

FILES

/usr/share/man directory for manual pages.

ENVIRONMENT

$MANPATH directories for searching cross references.

SEE ALSO

man(1), hier(7).

HISTORY

manck appeared in late July 1995.
