HTML Code:
System command (cd /usr/share/man && (echo ".pl 11i"; /usr/bin/gunzip -c '/usr/share/man/man1/ps.1.gz') | /usr/bin/gtbl | nroff --legacy ISO-8859-1 -man -rLL=77n -rLT=77n 2>/dev/null | /usr/bin/less -iRs) exited with status 36096.
No manual entry for ps
./man-out-store.sh: line 10: /home/tms6/rashmi/ps.txt: Success
# 2  
I think the clue is in the message:
Quote:
No manual entry for ps
If you just type into a terminal:
Code:
man ps

What do you get?
