OSX 10.14 Mojave Commands - 13K+ Total Man Pages in Repository

Just added OSX 10.14 Mojave Commands (currently over 13K pages in the mojave repo) to our man page repository:

OSX 10.14 Mojave Commands

We need to update all the man pages to the most current versions, so please contribute man page sets to your favorite OS environment (tar.gz with os and version) and I will add them.

Please tar like this:

Code:
CYBER-SA:man Tim$ cd /usr/share/man (or where ever your root dir for man pages resides)

CYBER-SA:man Tim$ ls -l
total 1024
drwxr-xr-x   1339 root  wheel   42848 Oct  6 08:56 man1
drwxr-xr-x    254 root  wheel    8128 Sep 18 23:23 man2
drwxr-xr-x  10340 root  wheel  330880 Sep 18 23:23 man3
drwxr-xr-x     48 root  wheel    1536 Jun 22 15:51 man4
drwxr-xr-x    195 root  wheel    6240 Oct  6 08:56 man5
drwxr-xr-x      3 root  wheel      96 Jun  9 13:18 man6
drwxr-xr-x     54 root  wheel    1728 Aug 29 12:38 man7
drwxr-xr-x    687 root  wheel   21984 Oct  6 08:56 man8
drwxr-xr-x     23 root  wheel     736 Jun 11 09:21 man9
drwxr-xr-x    661 root  wheel   21152 Aug 29 12:38 mann
-rw-r--r--      1 root  wheel  498861 Oct  6 20:55 whatis

Then something like this (based on your OS environment):

Code:
tar -cLvzf /tmp/mojave.10.14.man.pages.usr.share.man.tar.gz *

All man pages should be gzipped (.gz extension) and please dereference all symlinks when you tar all files. Thanks.

Thanks.

Hi Neo,

very good point to update our man pages and offer recent and up-to-date versions. Not sure if creating and sending tons of GB is too efficient. And, I'm pretty sure the man pages on my system are not 100% complete. Would it make sense to just provide a line like Ubuntu Manpage?

No.. Need the full page distributions (without symlinks and no hard links if possible), not links to other sites and place.

Links to other sites change, break and are harder to maintain than the distros on site.

I already have written the the code to process most man page formats, and will write more later this year (for the odds ones like AIX, etc).

Plus, many of the pages in our repo are from older UNIXes which are not upgrading. We need the current man page repos from the UNIX and Linux distros which are still actively evolving.

Thanks.

EDIT:

I have no objections if anyone wants to build and maintain a page or two of links to on-line man pages for all varieties of UNIX and Linux. If you do, please include a link to where we can also download the complete man page distribution in (in a tar.gz file for example).

For my project, I need the actual troff / groff formatted man pages, in a directory tree with man pages in sections (directories)...

Like this:

Code:
CYBER-SA:tmp Tim$ cd /usr/share/man

CYBER-SA:man Tim$ ls -l
total 1024
drwxr-xr-x   1339 root  wheel   42848 Oct  6 08:56 man1
drwxr-xr-x    254 root  wheel    8128 Sep 18 23:23 man2
drwxr-xr-x  10340 root  wheel  330880 Sep 18 23:23 man3
drwxr-xr-x     48 root  wheel    1536 Jun 22 15:51 man4
drwxr-xr-x    195 root  wheel    6240 Oct  6 08:56 man5
drwxr-xr-x      3 root  wheel      96 Jun  9 13:18 man6
drwxr-xr-x     54 root  wheel    1728 Aug 29 12:38 man7
drwxr-xr-x    687 root  wheel   21984 Oct  6 08:56 man8
drwxr-xr-x     23 root  wheel     736 Jun 11 09:21 man9
drwxr-xr-x    661 root  wheel   21152 Aug 29 12:38 mann
-rw-r--r--      1 root  wheel  498861 Oct  6 20:55 whatis

And a section directory looks like this (with all files gzipped, if possible, it not, I will gzip them myself):

Code:
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel    10177 Jul  6 15:44 ab.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      280 Jun 10 15:43 accesstool.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel     2816 Jun  9 13:17 addftinfo.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      905 Jun 10 13:59 afconvert.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel     1150 Jun 10 13:59 afhash.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      982 Jun 10 13:58 afida.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      711 Jun 10 13:59 afinfo.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel     7746 Jun  9 13:17 afmtodit.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      821 Jun 10 13:59 afplay.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      585 Jun  9 13:22 afscexpand.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel     2069 Jun  9 14:55 agentxtrap.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel       19 Jun  9 13:15 alias.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel       19 Jun  9 13:15 alloc.1
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel      401 Jun  9 14:21 analyticsd.1

No symbolic links (all should be resolved when tar'ed up)... Thanks.
# 4  
Admin note:

Just when thru all distributions with dead symbolic links and removed them. Before a lot of people sent us distributions in tar files but they did not resolve the symlinks when they tarred... this caused a lot of bad entries in the repo.

Also, just made sure all man pages were gzipped, as there are some problems displaying the pages when the pages are not gzipped.
