The online manual database.

man-db is an implementation of the standard Unix documentation system accessed using the man command. It uses a GDBM database in place of the traditional flat-text whatis databases. man-db is used by several popular GNU/Linux distributions, including Debian, Fedora, SuSE, and Ubuntu. It also compiles and runs on a number of proprietary Unix systems.
