bash: man: command not found

I tried to use the man command as described by several online sources, but Sugar doesn't recognize the request.

It would be nice if man worked, so that kids using Terminal could find the syntax and descriptions of what commands do.

Some sort of placeholder man command should happen...

I don't know how much space it would take to include the man files; it would be worth looking. Unfortunately, many are worthless due to the Gnu project's mis-begotten focus on emacs info files.

Another option will be to provide these on the school server and have an activity that can find them.
