Use the man terminal command in Ubuntu Linux

If you're new to the terminal, then the man command is your very best friend. This video clip will teach you how to use the man (manual page) command to view the manual pages for terminal commands. A manual page includes a brief description of the command as well as outlines the various options that may be used with the command. Use the Page Up and Page Down keys to scroll forward and backward in the manual page. Press q to quit the manual page. To search all commands for a particular keyword, try using man with the -k option (e.g., "man -k list").
