MAN.CONF(5)							   MAN.CONF(5)

NAME
       man.conf	- configuration	data for man

DESCRIPTION
       This file is read by man(1) and contains	(a) information	on how to con-
       struct the search path for man, (b) full	path names  for	 various  pro-
       grams like nroff, eqn, tbl etc. used by man, and	(c) a list with	uncom-
       pressors	for files with a given extension.  An alternative  version  of
       this file can be	specified with

	      man -C private_man.conf ...

       The  command  names  may	 be  provided with options.  Useful options to
       nroff can be found in grotty(1).	 For example, instead of  the  default
       line

	      NROFF /usr/bin/groff -mandoc -Tlatin1

       one may write

	      NROFF /usr/bin/groff -mandoc -Tlatin1 -P-u -P-b

       in order	to suppress underlining	and overstriking.
