Task 4: Manual Pages


To avoid wasting time scrolling the man page of SCP, I choose to use the man command together with “grep -e”, where the grep command will search inside the man page of SCP.

Details from “man grep”


I checked to see if the result from “ man fdisk | grep -e “list” ” was correct by running “ fdisk -l “ before answering.


Same as the two previous with the “man” and “grep” commands.


I used a couple more commands to be sure of the answer, I tried some different “grep” before entering the man pages of netcat.
