Q.  How can I search man pages?

A.  There are a few ways:

man -k <target> whatis <target> apropos <target>
Where <target> is what you're looking for. Eg:
man -k ssh whatis ssh apropos ssh
This is often better than Googling since it gives you info about you distro and the the exact version you have.
