In Unix, how do I get a printed copy of a manual page?
Note: In the examples below, replace
command with the name of the Unix command for
which you would like the man page, and
with the name of the printer to which you are printing.
In Unix, if you want to print a manual page to your local
printer, at the prompt, enter:
man command | col -bx | ansiprt
If you do not have
ansiprt on your system, see the
Knowledge Base document In Unix, how do I print a file to my local printer?
If you are using a BSD system to send the manual page to a networked printer, at the prompt, enter: man command | lpr -Pprinter On System V systems, enter: man command | lp -dprinter
At Indiana University, for personal or departmental Linux or Unix systems support, see At IU, how do I get support for Linux or Unix?
