MAN.CONF(5)               FreeBSD File Formats Manual              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
       construct the search path for man, (b) full path names for various
       programs like nroff, eqn, tbl etc. used by man, and (c) a list with
       uncompressors 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.

FILES
       @man_config_file@
