4.1 man

The man macro package is the most widely used and probably the most important ever developed for troff. It is easy to use, and a vast majority of manual pages (“man pages”) are written in it.

groff’s implementation is documented in the groff_man(7) man page. Type ‘man groff_man’ at the command line to view it.
