man, lookman - print or find pages of this manual
man [ option ... ] [ section ... ] title ...
lookman key ...
Man locates and prints pages of this manual named title in the specified sections. Title
is given in lower case. Each section is a number; pages marked (2S), for example, belong
to chapter 2. If no section is specified, pages in all sections are printed. Any name
from the NAME section at the top of the page will serve as a title.
The options are:
-p Run proof(1) on the specified man pages.
-t Run troff and send its output to standard output.
-n (Default) Print the pages on the standard output using nroff.
Lookman prints the names of all manual sections that contain all of the key words given on
the command line.
troff source for manual; this page is /sys/man/1/man
indices searched to find pages corresponding to titles

The manual was intended to be typeset; some detail is sacrificed on text terminals.
There is no automatic mechanism to keep the indices up to date.
Except for special cases, it doesn't recognize things that should be run through tbl
