 Writing man Pages

Linux.com takes us through creating man pages.

"Man pages are written in a markup language, generally referred to as nroff; in fact, there are other processors for it (such as troff or groff), but it's all the same language. Nroff is a markup language, but it's a bit more primitive than HTML or SGML. On the other hand, it's a macro language, so arbitrarily complex things can be done in it. There are sets of macros designed to support certain document types."
