What Others Think

many key bindings are the same as vi. the info command often provides more info - no pun intended - than man does, but it uses mostly emacs key bindings.

But man does NOT have it's own key bindings! It uses whatever $PAGER you may have set or default pager command, and hitting h does nothing in the one I'm using (lv). This entry was probably meant for less users and doesn't have anything to do with man. Oh, and you can get description of less keys using man less

Yes, that is true, mwgamera. Man uses whatever pager is in $PAGER env variable. This is pretty much always less, but sometimes it can be more. Other than that, you probably are looking at a custom setup and you already know what pageryou chose.

Learning commands is not that difficult, but not all people can do it. For example, humanities are bad at anything related to programming, even simple memorization of commands. But one cannot say that they are somehow worse than those people who can easily memorize commands, because those people who easily memorize commands may have a technical mindset and be absolutely not adapted to writing homework such as essays, reviews, studies. But of course there is a way out for both the first and the second, https://buypapercheap.net/ helps everyone with writing both humanitarian homework and technical homework.
