PASE needs the MAN command and MAN pages for all commands
In IBM i we have very nice help capabilities for all commands. But when using PASE or QShell, we do not have the AIX "man" command or the "man pages" available.
This means we need to resort to searching the internet, IBM web pages for AIX, the Knowledge Center, etc. , to find the syntax and arguments for any AIX commands we might want to use in PASE or Qshell.
This is very inconvenient.
When working in a Unix-style shell such as QShell or PASE, we would normally expect to find help for commands in the form of "MAN PAGES" accessible via the "man" command. Sadly, PASE (QP2TERM) and QShell do not currently provide this capability.
IBM should be able to easily port the AIX man pages and the man command to run in PASE and the same functionality should also be made available in Qshell.
When working in Qshell or PASE, it really slows down progress when we must go open a browser to search for command syntax etc. using the IBM AIX Knowledge Center, when this information could be made readily available, as it is when working in the "real" AIX shell(s).
