Even more shockingly, a *lot* of folks seem to have forgotten relatively
quick, but not painless due to excessive results returned, local ways to
discover a lot of this stuff. So a reminder may help folks out.

If you run makewhatis every once-in-awhile you can then use "man -k
<keyword>" or, IIRC, apropos. I just ran a test using postscript as a
keyword and there were a few useful reminders in the exorbitant amount
of chaff returned.

HTH a lot of folks,
