  3. Note: this is the official documentation included with Perl. It does not contain general manual pages.
  4. 4,0 4,1 Note: the SUS pages use a non-numerical chapter system. A simple mapping is in place for human comfort.

Other sources

Occasionally you will come across manual pages for which writing a source is overkill. In this case you can use Template:man/format directly with a URL for formatting:

In Out
{{man/format|1|dbx|http://.../dbx.1.html|source-level debugging tool|[[Sun Studio]] Developer's Manual}} dbx(1): source-level debugging tool – Sun Studio Developer's Manual

The interface of Template:man/format is therefore externally visible and needs to be kept constant.


Writing sources

A source takes three parameters:

  1. Manual section
  2. Manual page name
  3. Output selector:
    • attrib for attribution
    • url for URL to page
    • display_section for section to display in parentheses.

See Template:Man/die.net for an example; see Template:Man/FreeBSD for a demonstration of varying the attribution by manual section.


Template:man handles choosing the default source and calling it for URL and attribution; the default source is Template:man/default, which is a template redirect currently to Template:man/die.net. Template:man/format actually formats the link and descriptions into a nice-looking link+auxilia in Unix style.
