       manpath [-qgdc] [-m system[,...]]


       If  $MANPATH  is set, manpath will simply display its con­
       tents and issue a warning.  If not, manpath will determine
       a  suitable  manual page hierarchy search path and display
       the results.

       The colon-delimited path is determined  using  information
       gained  from  the  man-db  configuration file - (/etc/man­
       path.config) and the user's environment.


       -q, --quiet
              Do not issue warnings.

       -d, --debug
              Produce debugging information.

       -c, --catpath
              Produce a catpath as opposed to  a  manpath.   Once
              the  manpath  is  determined,  each path element is
              converted to its relative catpath.

       -g, --global
              Produce a manpath consisting of all paths named  as
              `global' within the man-db configuration file.

       -m system[,...], --systems=system[,...]
              If  this  system has access to other operating sys­
              tem's manual hierarchies, this option can  be  used
              to  include  them  in  the  output  of manpath.  To
              include NewOS's manual  page  hierarchies  use  the
              option -m NewOS.

              The  system specified can be a combination of comma
              delimited operating system names.  To  include  the
              native  operating system's manual page hierarchies,
              the system name man must be included in  the  argu­
              ment string.  This option will override the $SYSTEM
              environment variable.

       -h, --help
              Print a help message and exit.

       -V, --version
              Display version and author information.


              If $MANPATH is  set,  manpath  displays  its  value


       /etc/manpath.config  System configuration file.
