Description

PUPPET-MAN(8)                    Puppet manual                   PUPPET-MAN(8)



NAME
       puppet-man - Display Puppet manual pages.

SYNOPSIS
       puppet man action

DESCRIPTION
       Please  use  the command 'puppet help subcommand' or the system manpage
       system 'man puppet-subcommand' to display information about Puppet sub-
       commands.  The  deprecated man subcommand displays manual pages for all
       Puppet subcommands. If the ronn gem (https://github.com/rtomayko/ronn/)
       is  installed  on  your system, puppet man will display fully-formatted
       man pages. If ronn is not available, puppet man will  display  the  raw
       (but human-readable) source text in a pager.

OPTIONS
       Note  that any setting that's valid in the configuration file is also a
       valid long argument, although it may or may  not  be  relevant  to  the
       present action. For example, server and run_mode are valid settings, so
       you can specify --server <servername>, or --run_mode  <runmode>  as  an
       argument.

       See    the    configuration    file   documentation   at   https://pup-
       pet.com/docs/puppet/latest/configuration.html  for  the  full  list  of
       acceptable  parameters.  A  commented list of all configuration options
       can also be generated by running puppet with --genconfig.

       --render-as FORMAT
              The format in which to render output. The  most  common  formats
              are  json, s (string), yaml, and console, but other options such
              as dot are sometimes available.

       --verbose
              Whether to log verbosely.

       --debug
              Whether to log debug information.

ACTIONS
       man - Display the manual page for a Puppet subcommand.
              SYNOPSIS

              puppet man subcommand

              DESCRIPTION

              Display the manual page for a Puppet subcommand.

              RETURNS

              The man data, in Markdown format, suitable  for  consumption  by
              Ronn.

              RENDERING  ISSUES:  To  skip fancy formatting and output the raw
              Markdown text (e.g. for use in a  pipeline),  call  this  action
              with '--render-as s'.

EXAMPLES
       man

       View the installed manual page for the subcommand 'config':

       $ man puppet-config

       (Deprecated) View the manual page for the subcommand 'config':

       $ puppet man config
