which manpage am I looking at?

Q. which manpage am I looking at?

man -w keyword

gives the filename of the manpage that would be displayed when

man keyword

is entered at the commandline.

To get a list of all plausible manpages use

man -aw keyword

The -w option works for info also.

Q. which info page am I using?

info -w keyword

gives the path of the info file that would have been displayed if the command "info keyword" is used.

Ref :- The manpages of man, info!
