To find out more about a command use ‘man’ and then the command name, entering this will give you a program manual for that particular command. E.g.

$ man vim

Once displayed to see the next page, press the space bar or to exit press q at the command prompt.

Manuals come in a number of sections, so to shortcut them use:

$ man 1 passwd

This will jump to section 1 or use

$ man N intro

Where N is the section number you are interested in.
