當命令和配置檔名相同時,可以通過man 1 passwd檢視命令幫助,man 5 passwd檢視配置檔案幫助




  • 在man閱讀命令資訊下按/輸入搜尋內容可以在當前文字中查詢,同時按n跳轉到下一個查詢到的內容



  • man 配置檔名





[root@localhost ~]# whatis ifconfig
ifconfig (8)         - 配置網路介面


[[email protected] ~]# apropos ifconfig

                               modification time: atime or access or use (-u)
                               ctime or status (-c); also use specified time
                               as sort key if --sort=time

                               FORMAT is interpreted like in 'date'; if FORMAT
                               is FORMAT1<newline>FORMAT2, then FORMAT1 applies
                               to non-recent files and FORMAT2 to recent files;
                               if STYLE is prefixed with 'posix-', STYLE
                               takes effect only outside the POSIX locale

                               otherwise: sort by access time
  -U                         do not sort; list entries in directory order

  -w, --width=COLS           assume screen width instead of current value

  -1                         list one file per line

SELinux options:

  --lcontext                 Display security context.   Enable -l. Lines
                             will probably be too wide for most displays.
  -Z, --context              Display security context so it fits on most
                             displays.  Displays only mode, user, group,
                             security context and file name.
  --scontext                 Display only security context and file name.

SIZE is an integer and optional unit (example: 10M is 10*1024*1024).  Units
are K, M, G, T, P, E, Z, Y (powers of 1024) or KB, MB, ... (powers of 1000).

3.4、help+命令 檢視Shell內建命令


[root@localhost temp]# help umask
umask: umask [-p] [-S] [模式]

    設定使用者檔案建立掩碼為 MODE 模式。如果省略了 MODE,則

    如果MODE 模式以數字開頭,則被當作八進位制數解析;否則是一個
    chmod(1) 可接收的符號模式串。

      -p    如果省略 MDOE 模式,以可重用為輸入的格式輸入
      -S    以符號形式輸出,否則以八進位制數格式輸出

    返回成功,除非使用了無效的 MODE 模式或者選項。
