The Missing Man Pages Poject (or m2p2) aims to provide the man-pages for various applications for UNIX-like Operating Systems, where the author did not provide an adaequate man-page. As 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 Poject will provide it.

Writing man-pages is an easy task that can be accomplished by everybody, so if you would like to contribute to Open Source but lack the time or skills for bigger projects, join m2p2 to make UNIX-like systems easier to use.
