There are some binaries and corresponding man pages on the IBM AIX system I am working with (/some/path/bin and /some/path/man), but neither bin nor man directory are in my
$MANPATH . I would like to view the specific man page. How do I display the man page, given I know its locaction, i.e. /some/path/man/my_man.5?
If I run
man /some/path/man/my_man.5 I get
Manual entry for /some/path/man/my_man.5 not found or not installed.
I have tried to add the path /some/path/man to my
$MANPATH environment variable, but then when I do
man my_man.5 I get the usual man screen, but it displays only the header of the whole man page, i.e. Page 1, while if I
vim /some/path/man/my_man.5 I see the whole text.
The issue seems to manifest itself on AIX system (where as I understand lot of tools are not GNU), cause if I do
man /some/path/man/my_man.5 on Linux system I do get the expected man screen.
