       apropos - Locates reference pages by keyword

       apropos keyword...

       The  apropos  command  shows which reference pages contain instances of
       any of the given keywords in their purpose lines.

       Specifies the word(s) for which apropos should search.

       In looking for keywords, apropos considers  each	 word  separately  and
       ignores	the  case  of  letters. Words that are part of other words are
       also considered; thus, when looking for the word compile, apropos  will
       also find all instances of compiler.

       If  the	output of the apropos command begins with a name and reference
       section number, you can enter man section name.	For  example,  if  the
       output of the apropos command is make(1u), you can enter man 1u make to
       obtain the reference page on System V version of the make command.

       The apropos command works just like the man command with the -k option.

       To find reference pages with the keyword password in the purpose	 line,
       enter: apropos password

       Keyword database.

       Commands:  man(1), whatis(1), catman(8)
