This website is a repository of all manual pages available in the Arch Linux packages. It is an unofficial project created and maintained by the ArchWiki administrators. The code is developed in a GitHub repository.
There are 63219 manual pages and 8103 symbolic links from 3346 packages, another 7905 packages do not contain any indexable manual pages.
Traditionally, manual pages are organized into several sections. Read the introduction pages for each section: intro(1), intro(2), intro(3), intro(4), intro(5), intro(6), intro(7), intro(8). Some packages provide their manuals in a subsection (e.g. 3ssl) and some use non-standard sections (e.g. 0 or n).
There are several ways to find a specific manual page:
- Use the search form to search for keywords in the names and descriptions of manual pages and packages.
- Use the listing form to list all manual pages matching the specified filtering and sorting criteria.
- Manually use the addressing scheme as explained below.
