A good friend is starting his “piscine” at 42 today; it’s only his first day but he already made me the good old joke about “there is no man fred”.

If this joke doesn’t make you smile, this is probably because you don’t know what is the man command for developers and how much useful it is.

Explanation: man is the short for manual, when you type man something in a terminal, you can get some information about the command/function/thing.

More info on Wikipedia: man page, RTFM (read the fucking manual)

Unfortunately, as the fred command does not exist by default, running man fred will just raise an error:

$ man fred
No manual entry for fred

As a workaround, I created a manpage for fred four years ago. Today, I just added some install instructions and an example in the README file.

As soon as you install this manpage on your computer, you will be able to type man fred and have usefulvital! information about me :)

Good luck William for your piscine!
