open man page of last used command

man !!
when we work with terminal often we open man pages for help if we did some mistakes and when we want to open the man page for command we are working with this one helps as many people may be knowing that '!!' performs the last command action we use it in sudo !! to perform the last action with root previleages man !! will also be helpful and handy thanx

What Others Think

Voted down because the options given for your previous command will make man bork. Also you should read the man page before you execute the command ;-)
