    Unanswered: Man Pages

    Hi!

    I have created some Unix shell scripts (utilities for my application) and now my client want me to create the manual pages too for these utilities and I am in a fix. I Know the MANPATH is the environment variables where the manual pages should be located but my problem is how to create a manual page, like formatting, how does it start (I suppose with "."). Any help in regard will be great. Anyone url will be quite helpful.

    Thanks in advance
