This portal is to open public enhancement requests against IBM Power Systems products, including IBM i. To view all of your ideas submitted to IBM, create and manage groups of Ideas, or create an idea explicitly set to be either visible by all (public) or visible only to you and IBM (private), use the IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com).
We invite you to shape the future of IBM, including product roadmaps, by submitting ideas that matter to you the most. Here's how it works:
Start by searching and reviewing ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted, and add a comment, vote, or subscribe to updates on them if they matter to you. If you can't find what you are looking for,
Post an idea.
Get feedback from the IBM team and other customers to refine your idea.
Follow the idea through the IBM Ideas process.
Welcome to the IBM Ideas Portal (https://www.ibm.com/ideas) - Use this site to find out additional information and details about the IBM Ideas process and statuses.
IBM Unified Ideas Portal (https://ideas.ibm.com) - Use this site to view all of your ideas, create new ideas for any IBM product, or search for ideas across all of IBM.

Unfortunately, we will not be delivering man pages for existing PASE functions. However, as we deliver more tools in the future, we will consider adding man page support or them.
Would certainly enhance productivity to have the ability to use man pages within QShell or PASE.
I second that statement by Michael_Quigley. For instance, the grep command on IBM i in PASE operates very differently than it does on every other platform (as it relates to searching subdirectories). That is still very confusing to me and it has taken quite a long time to find the reality behind the scenes - it sounds like the command in PASE will not be upgraded anytime soon. Have a local MAN would be extremely helpful.
What makes opening a browser and searching even more inconvenient is that you can find a different version of the *nix-like command where the options, flags, or whatever are not supported in PASE or QShell.
