What is a MAN file?
A .MAN file is an Unix Manual Page file.
Files that contain the .man file extension are most commonly associated with the Unix Man utility program. Unix "man" is used to view documentation that contains information about Unix commands and functions. These files are usually stored in a plain text format.
In most cases, the MAN files used by the Unix system will not be stored with the .man file extension. Instead, they will be given a series of file extensions ranging from .1 to .8.
