The man-db package includes five tools for browsing man-pages:
man, whatis, apropos, manpath and lexgrog. man formats and displays
manual pages. whatis searches the manual page names. apropos searches the
manual page names and descriptions. manpath determines search path
for manual pages. lexgrog directly reads header information in
manual pages.
