$ info bash # bash shell info pages (hypertext)
 (some man pages are updated less requently than info pages)
$ info find
$ info xargs

In most cases you can replace "info" with "man" - but note that man pages
often are less frequently updated.

	$ type -a <command>
says "Internal command" then
	$ help <command>
usually tells more.

Though you might find it easier to find relevant parts of the text by using
less's "/" key to search for interesting text in the _man_ pages  (this
works in the info pages too, but is less succesful IMO)
