1.7 Man Pages

Online manual (man) pages provide immediate documentation about a command, function, subroutine, or collection of such things. The user's MANPATH environment variable should be set to the path to the installed Solaris Studio man directory to access the Oracle Solaris Studio man pages.

You can display a man page by running the command:

demo% man topic

Throughout the Fortran documentation, man page references appear with the topic name and man section number: f95(1) is accessed with man f95. Other sections, denoted by ieee_flags(3M) for example, are accessed using the -s option on the man command:

demo% man -s 3M ieee_flags

The Fortran library routines are documented in the man page section 3F.

The following lists man pages of interest to Fortran users:

The Fortran 95 command-line options
Solaris Studio Performance Analyzer
Fortran carriage-control print output post-processor
Command-line interactive debugger
Fortran source code pre-processor
C source code pre-processor
Display contents of a MODULE (.mod) file.
Pre-processor splits Fortran source routines into single files
Examine, set, or clear floating-point exception bits
Handle floating-point exceptions
Math library error handling routine
Link editor for object files
