The Missing Man Pages Project

The Missing Man Pages Poject (or m2p2) aims to provide man pages for various applications whose authors did not provide an adequate man page. Since proper documentation is crucial for optimal use of an operating systems and its tools, it is important that each and every application has a man page describing at least all the available command line options and a general overview of what the program does. If the author of a particular piece of software did not provide a proper man page for his or her project, the Missing Man Pages Project aims to provide it.
